Girls’ basketball: Power forward Emily Elliott (‘21) earned a spot on the San Joaquin League first team for girls’ basketball this season. She received this first-team nod for the second year in a row, as she was a first-team performer in the Academy League as a freshman.

Point guard Isabel Gomez (‘22) was named to the second team. Small forward Zoe Mazakas (‘20) earned an honorable mention.

"There is no doubt that the performances from our awesome student athletes catapulted Sage Hill Athletics to the top of the Western Athletic Conference in 2018-19," said Director of Athletics Megan Cid. "We are so proud of all of our All League honorees and their teammates for the grit and determination shown throughout the year. We expect much of the same heading into the 2019-20 school year as the foundation of success has been laid and the tradition of excellence has become the standard."
