A group interested in founding a private Christian high school in Newport Beach found a possible location at the site of their alma mater, a school that has since been converted into the West Newport Community Center. Newport Beach is hoping to get a school to open at the location, which would be shared with the city as it works to finalize a location for a new community center, officials confirmed Wednesday. The property seemed ideal to David Bahnsen, vice president of Pacifica Christian High School of Orange County's board of trustees, which is interested in the former site of Newport Christian High School.

NEWPORT COAST - Dressed in sweats, Taylor Petty was closer to going to bed than playing for Sage Hill School on Saturday night. Sage Hill was without its best athlete. Bad timing when the Lighting played host to The Bishop's, the defending CIF State Division IV champion. Petty, out with a leg issue, saw the Knights run away with a 57-7 victory. The Lighting missed their senior against the program from La Jolla. Without Petty at quarterback, the offense went nowhere.

NEWPORT COAST — When Olivia Simon sat down in Cha for Tea to write the speech she would give at her graduation from Sage Hill School, she wasn't sure how to explain her time there, but all that changed when three junior girls walked in. Simon, who will attend Washington University in St. Louis in the fall, said although she didn't know the girls well, they recognized each other from school and immediately sat down and started talking. "We laughed together like we were old friends," she 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.

After going winless a year ago, Sage Hill School has qualified for the CIF Southern Section East Valley Division playoffs. Sage Hill's 50-40 victory at Crean Lutheran in an Academy League finale on Friday night helped the Lightning earn a berth into the postseason. The Lightning (5-5, 2-2 in league) received one of the East Valley Division's three at-large playoff entries on Saturday, when the CIF Southern Section released the at-large teams. Sage Hill needed an at-large berth because it finished third in the Academy league, which only receives two guaranteed playoff berths.
