Tony Altobelli CORONA DEL MAR - Talk about peaking at just the right time. The Corona del Mar High girls soccer team mowed down yet another opponent Thursday afternoon with a 3-0 win over visiting Valley Christian of Cerritos in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division IV Playoffs. The final score in no way indicates the domination of the top-seeded Sea Kings (26-1-3) over the Crusaders (18-2-5). Despite a return trip to the semifinals, CdM Coach Ron Evans is still not comfortable talking about the future.

Bryce Alderton The Newport Harbor High girls basketball team entered unfamiliar territory Friday night and for the first quarter things went smoothly. But the Sailors soon found themselves in too deep against host Valley Christian, which won, 57-39, to claim the championship of the Valley Christian tournament. The Sailors (5-4), playing in their first tournament title game in Coach Jen Thompson's three seasons at the helm, took a 17-10 lead after one quarter, but a litany of turnovers, combined with a strong post game, allowed the Crusaders (7-4)

Rick Devereux A team that had won a total of four games in its two-year history, on paper, would appear to have the odds stacked against it of making the CIF playoffs the following season. But that is exactly what Sage Hill School's football team is doing this year after completing the regular season with a 7-3 record, which it takes into Friday's CIF Southern Section Division XIII first-round contest against host Linfield Christian at 7 p.m. The game marks the first CIF appearance for a Lightning football team.

Barry Faulkner CERRITOS - While the Costa Mesa High boys soccer team is still enjoying what is believed to be the school's first league championship, Estancia cashed in the benefits of winning the CIF Southern Section Division IV crown last season, when this year's playoff pairings were released Monday at the section office. The Eagles (9-4-5), who tied for third in the Pacific Coast League, but lost the tiebreaker to Northwood for the league's third guaranteed playoff spot, practiced Monday, instead of turning it their gear.

The fashion in which the Sage Hill School baseball team walked off the field Friday wasn't pretty. Nevertheless, the host school will take the result, a 10-9 walk-off win against Saddleback Valley Christian. "I couldn't believe it," Sage Hill Coach Dominic Campeau said of watching his team rally for four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, two errors leading to the first and last runs. "If you're going to play ugly, and you get the win, it's always a positive. It's not the effort.

In their 11th season, Sage Hill School's football team is off to its first 0-3 start in program history. Sage was manhandled on Friday, losing, 30-8, to nonleague visitor Capistrano Valley Christian. With sophomore quarterback CJ McCord out with a broken arm, Sage's passing game struggled. Senior Harrison Ray stepped in McCord's place, completing just three of nine for 19 yards in the first half, but ended the night nine for 17 for 76 yards, along with an interception. The two teams hadn't squared off since 2008, so Capistrano Valley reintroduced itself by putting on a passing clinic for Sage.

NEWPORT COAST — Sage Hill School junior midfielder Colton Gyulay says the Lightning need to close out games, especially in the CIF Southern Section Division VII playoffs. His goal in the 23rd minute helped that cause, as the Lightning beat Saddleback Valley Christian, 2-1 in the second round Tuesda. Gyulay’s goal gave Sage Hill (19-8-2) a 2-0 lead. “Scoring the goal provided some cushion and took some pressure off,” Gyulay said. Playing at home also helped the Lightning, which at one time thought it would be playing at SVC because of a ball violation.

Sage Hill School’s baseball team will face the heat today. Not just in the form of miles per hour, but in degrees. The Lightning leave the beach for the desert, where it is expected to be 90 degrees in Apple Valley. The town’s motto is “A Better Way of Life.” More suitable if you’re indoors and the air conditioner is on during this time of year. This one will be outside when Sage Hill (15-6) plays at Apple Valley Christian (18-2) in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs at 3:15 p.m. “We’re going to be battling the elements with the heat and being on the road,” Sage Hill first-year coach Andy Berglund said.

NEWPORT COAST ? With Sage Hill School already down three runs, reliever Brendan Chambers tried to deliver the knockout and close out the game. Three fastballs definitely knocked batters off the plate, as the Saddleback Valley Christian right-hander plunked three batters in the top of the seventh inning. Before Chambers hit his third batter and loaded the bases, Coach Jim Romero walked to the mound. Romero asked his junior, "What are you doing to us?" "I'm just making it interesting," Chambers told Romero.
