IRVINE - Sage Hill School traveled to Irvine to play Crean Lutheran inside a building some call a sound bubble. It burst Sage Hill's attempt at making history. No longer can the Lightning finish perfect in Academy League play. Crean Lutheran ruined Sage Hill's run, handing the visitors their first league setback by taking Tuesday's five-set match, 25-22, 23-25, 25-21, 23-25, 15-11. In a battle between not only the No. 1 and No. 2 girls' volleyball teams in league, but also the top two teams in the CIF Southern Section Division 3-A poll, the No. 2 team barely prevailed.

Sage Hill School girls' tennis coach A.G. Longoria said his team lost its mojo on Monday. Tuesday, it lost its best chance at claiming its second consecutive outright Academy League championship by sustaining its second setback in two days, a 10-8 defeat at the hands of league rival Oxford Academy at The Tennis Club in Newport Beach. But should the Lightning manage to handle Whitney in their league finale at home on Friday, Longoria's group will have become the league's biggest winners.

Jaclyn Gerschultz plays several sports, but before she started them all she was playing the piano. She's been playing since she was about 4 years old. She practices everyday for 45 minutes, and each Monday she goes to Wenjen Piano Studios in Seal Beach. "We have recitals once a month on the weekends, and then we have competitions like seven times a year where we go other places," Gerschultz said. After talking to Gerschultz, a sophomore at Sage Hill School, one gets the idea that she can compete in whatever she wants.

Sage Hill School football coach J.R. Tolver says there aren't many teenage boys from San Juan Capistrano like Will Burns. Those kids, he says, tend to stay home and play for rival St. Margaret's or another south county school. Tolver lucked out with the Burns family. He has two Burns boys, Will and Zach, playing for him this year. The oldest is Will and he's making plays for the Lightning as a senior. Burns gets to play near his house on Friday, when Sage Hill travels to St. Margaret's for an Academy League opener.

Sage Hill School junior fullback Logan Cook pushed over the goal line on fourth down in the fourth overtime and the Lightning defense held visiting Silver Valley on the ensuing series to claim a dramatic 37-30 nonleague victory on Friday night. Silver Valley opened the first overtime with a touchdown, but Sage Hill answered. The two teams exchanged field goals in the second overtime, which like the NCAA format began on the opponents' 25-yard line.
