Sage Hill School's boys basketball team came up with a pair of 20-point efforts from Kevin Joyce and Michael Fitzhugh, but it was not enough to stem the tide of Whitney High's Wildcats, ignited by 6-foot-1 guard Khalis Boyd's 25-point production, in a 55-47 Academy League victory Friday night. The host Lightning fell behind by a 19-6 first-quarter count as Boyd scored 12 points in that span, 16 in the first half. "Whitney's the quickest team in the league and they shocked us with the quickness," said Sage Hill Coach Steve Keith, who watched his team fall to 7-10, 2-2 in league.

IRVINE - Sage Hill High sophomore forward Kevin Joyce had 13 of his team-high 16 points in the second half, but it wasn't enough to overcome a cold-shooting second quarter for the Lightning, which dropped a 61-52 boys basketball pool-play decision to Zinsmeyer Monday in the Tarbut V'Torah Tournament. Joyce also added a team-high 12 rebounds, while junior teammate Michael Fitzhugh added 11 points and 10 boards for Sage Hill (0-2), which meets host Tarbut V'Torah today at 4 in the second of three pool-play contests.

Rick Devereux The deep playoff run by the Sage Hill School boys volleyball team last year was no fluke. The Lightning finished 18-2, were co-champions of the Academy League and advanced to the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division V tournament before losing in four games to division runner-up Pasadena Poly. Last year's squad featured seven players who captured all-league recognition, including first-team All-CIF outside hitter Kevin Joyce, who moved on to USC. The foundation had been set for a formidable volleyball program.

Kevin Joyce, who is in New Zealand before beginning classes at USC in the fall, helped the basketball and volleyball teams reach the CIF playoffs for the first time and has been named the school's Male Athlete of the Year. Some might say Sage Hill doesn't face the stiffest of competition, but Joyce's basketball coach, Steve Keith, still considers him a special talent.

Rick Devereux Turning around a volleyball program from the bottom of the pile to CIF champions in four years is an accomplishment Estancia High's Josh Kornegay can appreciate. Kornegay, as a freshman in 2001, and the rest of the Eagles endured a 1-13 season, but he and teammates celebrated a 28-6 campaign with a CIF Southern Section Division III championship this spring.

Story by Barry Faulkner Photo by Sean Hiller Beyond talent and geographic proximity, there is another common theme binding the boys volleyball standouts on the Daily Pilot's All-Newport-Mesa Dream Team. And, perhaps, no one symbolizes this theme of coming into one's own as much as Corona del Mar High senior Eric Jones, who is the Player of the Year. This time last season, Jones, a 6-foot-7 middle blocker, was preparing to play his first club season, after failing to make the All-Pacific Coast League team in his first year on the varsity.
