SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO - The goalie save by Sage Hill junior Kekai Whitford early in the second half Thursday night, one of her 12 in the game, was unbelievable. Whitford dived forward to stop the cross from the right from Grace Chalmers of St. Margaret's. On the ground, she somehow threw her body in front of a rebound attempt by the Tartans' Sarah Gencarella. "That was probably one of the best high school saves I've seen in a long time, and I've been coaching for 29 years," St. Margaret's Coach Johnny Marmelstein said after the game.

The Sage Hill boys' soccer team came within about 90 seconds of an unbeaten regular season and a share of the Academy League championship Thursday. But first-year coach Gabriel Lucatero said following the Lightning's heartbreaking 1-0 loss to visiting St. Margaret's that his team may have taken away a memento that will serve them even better moving forward. "It does sting and I told them I was just as bothered by the loss as they were," Lucatero said after his team gave up the game-winning goal early in the 79th minute of the battle between teams that both entered the regular-season-ending showdown 10-0-1 in league play.

The Hawaiian culture is very meaningful for Sage Hill School sophomore Claire Novotny, whose mother, Debbie, is from the islands. The family went to Roy's, a Hawaiian fusion restaurant in Fashion Island, to celebrate Claire turning 16 a couple of weeks back. The next day, Claire received a Paradise cake, a light sponge cake that's another Hawaiian tradition. Combine that with the fact that Claire's father Lance, a Latin teacher at Sage Hill, is from Idaho. The thought makes Claire giggle.
