The gym was packed at Sage Hill School to see the Lightning girls' volleyball team in an important Academy League match Friday night. The Sage Hill fans were loud and gave the Lightning a strong lift in the first set, Coach Dan Thomassen said. The home volleyball team didn't disappoint its fans, as Sage Hill swept Crean Lutheran, 25-13, 25-22, 25-23. The Lightning, ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division 3-A, played near perfect in the first set and found ways to win in the second and third sets against the No. 3-ranked Saints, Thomassen said.

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.

"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.
