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.
