As young players for the Sage Hill School boys' water polo team, sophomore Rachael Jaffe and freshmen Paige Solaas and Laurenz Dodge could be considered X-factors. One way they differ from their teammates, though, is the XX chromosome. Yes, Jaffe, Solaas and Dodge are girls playing on the boys' team for the Lightning. But more than that, they are valued contributors. "Everyone enjoys and welcomes them on the team," Sage Hill Coach Tom Norton said. "They're great additions to our squad.

When Sage Hill School girls' volleyball coach Dan Thomassen compares his star outside hitter Kekai Whitford to Bo Jackson, there is admittedly a bit of a disconnect. Jackson was known for being a freak athlete, a two-sport star in professional baseball and football in the late 1980s. He was also known for being unstoppable as a running back in the "Tecmo Super Bowl" video game, as well as for making Nike a lot of money with his cross-trainer shoes and famous "Bo Knows" commercials.

NEWPORT BEACH - It wasn't quite a double date, but at a crucial moment in their doubles engagement on Tuesday, there Sage Hill School doubles partners Paige Reyna and Crystal Yu were, darting off to the ladies room together to freshen up. Tied, 5-5, against the Newport Harbor No. 1 team of Anna Burke and Kendall Cosenza, it was more like a fresh perspective the two Lightning freshmen needed. "We went to the bathroom to refocus," Reyna said. "We splashed water on our face and got focused and came up with a new strategy.

NEWPORT BEACH - Sage Hill School sophomore Jaclyn Gerschultz is a three-sport star, as she also plays soccer and runs track. Gerschultz also grew up playing softball, but the Lightning don't have a softball team. It was on the tennis court Saturday at The Tennis Club where Gerschultz gained respect from her senior teammate and co-captain, Mara Beard. That respect came even in a loss, 8-1, to JSerra freshman Jadie Acidera at No. 1 singles in the Sage Hill Prep Classic. "I was really proud of Jaclyn," Beard said.

SAN CLEMENTE - Capistrano Valley Christian sophomore Ben Sukut took the sweep right on the second play from scrimmage Friday night at San Clemente High. Sukut did more just than sweep right. He dodged tacklers, and 55 yards later he was in the end zone. For the rest of the night, Sukut let his older brother, senior Sam, join in on the fun. Sam Sukut had five total touchdowns as the Eagles overwhelmed Sage Hill, 42-7, in the nonleague game. "They're fast, they're physical and they've got a few kids that could probably play at JSerra, CdM, Newport Harbor," Sage Hill Coach J.R. Tolver said.

Since May, J.R. Tolver's commute to work changed. He moved to Oceanside to be closer to family in San Diego, where he grew up. The drive to where he works, Sage Hill School, isn't too bad, taking him 40 minutes to get to the Newport Coast campus. The drive allows him to collect his thoughts, analyze and plan his day as the school's football coach. These days, like most high school football coaches before the season kicks off, Tolver has a lot on his mind. What he thinks about most is how his team will improve from last year's forgettable season.
