NEWPORT COAST – There used to be a time not too long ago when Sage Hill challenged Oxford Academy in baseball. No longer is that the case in the Academy League. Sage Hill's youth and inexperience showed itself once more Tuesday. The defending league champion Patriots beat the host Lightning, 7-1, and improved to 10-0 in league play. With five leagues game left, the Patriots are closing in on their first undefeated league championship season in five years. They usually drop a game or two in league, and the losses come against the Lightning.

NEWPORT COAST — The game itself might not have had a lot of rhyme or reason, but Sage Hill School girls’ basketball coach Lou Silverman was in a rhyming mood. “We were strong enough for long enough,” said Silverman, perhaps channeling his inner Muhammad Ali after the Lightning topped Oxford Academy on Friday, 40-28, in an Academy League game. “I’m not sure this game qualifies as an artistic success, but we’ll take the ‘W’.” Sage Hill (13-7, 5-2 in league)

For David Carrillo Penaloza's blog, click here. NEWPORT COAST — The arguing started in the morning for the Sage Hill School baseball team Tuesday. One of its better hitters, Christopher Griffin, got thrown out for what an umpire ruled as a malicious tag near first base late in the game the day before. Coach Andy Berglund said he called the CIF Southern Section headquarters, trying to appeal Griffin requiring to miss Tuesday’s game. This one proved to be crucial in the Academy League.

NEWPORT COAST — After the game Tuesday, Sage Hill School boys’ soccer coach Noureddine El Alam had one final instruction to his team. “We’re having team pictures [today],” El Alam said. “You guys need to wash your clothes.” The Lightning, playing on a field still muddy from the weekend rains, slipped up in dropping a 2-0 decision to Oxford Academy at Sage Hill. It was Sage Hill’s first Academy League game after earning a forfeit win over Capistrano Valley Christian last week.

NEWPORT COAST - Sage Hill School girls' soccer coach Catie Chase said her team came into Tuesday night's key Academy League match against Oxford Academy with three objectives. The first objective was to honor and celebrate the team's seniors on senior night. The second objective was to play well, and the third was to win. The Lightning accomplished all three objectives. Junior Meg Crade scored twice as the hosts won, 2-0, to solidify their hold on third place in league and clinch a CIF Southern Section Division 5 playoff spot.

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.

NEWPORT COAST— Everything is all right with Sage Hill School point guard Nick Witte — except for the left side of his body. Already dealing with a left shoulder that possibly needs surgery again, a left pulled quad, a left knee that went through surgery, torn ligaments in his left thumb, Witte continues. Oh, and he pulled his left groin a couple of days ago. The setbacks haven't kept Witte away from the court. The Lightning needed their junior Tuesday as their leading scorer, Jamie McGee, played with a severe sprained ankle.

NEWPORT COAST — Just after Hayden Higger produced a three-run double on a full count with two out in the seventh inning, Oxford Academy Coach Dana Bedard began to celebrate. Bedard marched across the third baseline, in front of Sage Hill School’s dugout, putting emphasis on each step. Bedard likes to refer to his team as the little engine that could. The energetic coach must’ve kept with that theme, as he shouted, “Woo! Woo! Woo!” Higger’s huge double shattered Sage Hill’s hope of a victory in a game of the top teams in the Academy League.
