Jaclyn Gerschultz plays several sports, but before she started them all she was playing the piano. She's been playing since she was about 4 years old. She practices everyday for 45 minutes, and each Monday she goes to Wenjen Piano Studios in Seal Beach. "We have recitals once a month on the weekends, and then we have competitions like seven times a year where we go other places," Gerschultz said. After talking to Gerschultz, a sophomore at Sage Hill School, one gets the idea that she can compete in whatever she wants.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO — Sage Hill School opened Academy League play at defending league champion St. Margaret's on Friday. The result turned out like every other football game between these two rivals. Sage Hill lost, 48-7, giving it a 0-12 record against St. Margaret's. The Lightning (3-4, 0-1 in league) managed to score in the fourth quarter against the Tartans (6-0, 1-0), ranked No. 1 in the CIF Southern Section East Valley Division poll, to avoid being shut out for the first time this season.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO - Sage Hill School had not beaten rival St. Margaret's in girls' volleyball since winning the CIF Southern Section Division 4-AA title in 2011. The Lightning lost to the Tartans three times last year, twice in league and in the Division 3-A title match. But it's a new and maybe improved Lightning squad. Sage Hill is now the top-ranked team in Division 3-A, with St. Margaret's at No. 7. "It's a new year," said senior libero Allie Mowrey, one of three captains along with fellow senior Claudia Noto and junior setter Maddy Abbott.

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.
