COSTA MESA — A dramatic finish displaced the built-in beginning theme, but Vanguard University baseball coach Rob Pegg was certainly unwilling to quibble with his first day of competition at the helm of his alma mater. Pegg's Lions rallied for four runs in their last at-bat of the seven-inning second game to defeat La Sierra, 5-4, and sweep the nonconference doubleheader on Monday at Vanguard. After senior third baseman Jason Ochart walked with the bases loaded to drive in the tying run, senior Jordan Mould scored from third on a wild pitch to senior Ethan Harper to spark a boisterous celebration after a game in which the Lions were down to their final out and trailing, 4-1. Senior Nikko Tountas began the winning rally with a one-out pinch double and, one out later, sophomore Taylor McKnight barely cleared the left-field fence with a two-run home run against La Sierra reliever Logan Duran.

COSTA MESA - All second-year Vanguard University men's basketball coach Rhett Soliday wanted for Christmas was a little confidence. The Lions' 82-78 nonconference victory over visiting La Sierra on Friday helped solidify that request, though there was more sobering news on the injury front for a program that is still trying to gain more substantial footing in the competitive Golden State Athletic Conference. Vanguard (7-4) ended the game with a 16-4 run to turn away the Golden Eagles (0-10)

COSTA MESA — Coming off a 34-20 season in which the Vanguard University baseball team was at various times, 15-1, 19-2 and 25-5, the bar has been raised for Coach Ralph Grajeda's Lions. But it took all of one game to equal the biggest margin of victory achieved by the 2010 unit, as Vanguard trounced visiting La Sierra, 15-0, in the nonconference season opener Tuesday. Only once did last year's Lions produce a 15-run win, in a Feb. 20 shutout at home against Bethany College.

RIVERSIDE — It was a position the Sage Hill girls' volleyball team didn't want to be in Saturday night in the CIF Southern Section Division 3-A quarterfinals. After holding a two-game advantage the Lightning found themselves going into a fifth game in a hostile environment at La Sierra High. Without any momentum, the visitors found a way to bounce back for the roller-coaster victory, 25-13, 25-15, 15-25, 14-25, 15-10. "Seriously, there's no words to describe this match," said Sage Hill outside hitter Halland Mckenna, who finished with a team-high 21 digs, 10 kills and six aces.

RIVERSIDE - Sage Hill School's Halland McKenna remembered last year's volleyball match at Riverside La Sierra. She called it scary. Back then, the girls went the distance in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 3A playoffs. Sage Hill rallied from a four-point deficit in the fifth set and survived. McKenna and the Lightning returned to the same gym on Tuesday night to play another postseason match. They began the semifinals shaky. McKenna's play calmed Sage Hill down and she made sure the Lightning didn't have to stick around La Sierra too long.
