Rick Devereux Starting the season winless in the first nine matches was not sitting well with the Sage Hill School boys volleyball team. "It didn't matter what strategy I used, we stopped playing hard in matches," Coach Merja Connolly-Freund said. Connolly-Freund switched lineups around, started different players in different positions, switched from one setter to two setters. It didn't matter. But the Lightning players had a moment of reflection brought from within the team.

IRVINE - To avoid the heat, the Sage Hill School baseball team waited in the dugout for the home plate umpire to arrive to Friday's game. He ran late because of traffic, which postponed the start time 23 minutes. "Umpire just got off the freeway," Crean Lutheran Coach Jake Haney said to Sage Hill Coach Dominic Campeau, who expected his team to play at 2:45 p.m. The scheduled time was 30 minutes before most contests Sage Hill plays.

The La Cañada High girls' soccer team came into Monday's CIF Southern Section Division 5 quarterfinal playoff match with 20 wins and one tie this season. All it takes in CIF, though, is one loss to be sent home. Unseeded Sage Hill pushed No. 3 La Cañada for 100 minutes of play on the pitch, and 10 penalty kicks. But all it took was one well-placed shot by Spartans sophomore Emma Tapp to end the game, as well as the Lightning's season. Tapp scored the game-winner on the 10th penalty kick as La Cañada won the shootout, 7-6, after the teams played to a 1-1 tie through regulation and two overtime periods.

But in the event that the Sage Hill School sophomore comes up a little short in the classroom on Thursday, some would suggest she has an iron-clad alibi.
