RIVERSIDE - Sage Hill School's Halland McKenna remembered last year's volleyball match at Riverside La Sierra. She called it scary. Back then, the girls went the distance in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 3A playoffs. Sage Hill rallied from a four-point deficit in the fifth set and survived. McKenna and the Lightning returned to the same gym on Tuesday night to play another postseason match. They began the semifinals shaky.

In the film he studied, it was hard for him to decipher what kind of a girls' volleyball team the Sea Kings were going to face on Thursday. They ended up playing a dynamic one. On the road, the third-seeded Sea Kings met their first challenge of the CIF Southern Section Division 1-AA playoffs. They passed, topping an athletic Bruin side, 25-22, 18-25, 28-26, 25-16, in the second round.
