Jaelyn Operana allowed one hit over 5 2/3 innings, and the Edison High softball team shut out host Los Alamitos 2-0 on Friday in the first game of a Surf League doubleheader.

Jenna Bloom came on for the final four outs, recording three of them via the strikeout. Emma Mendoza and Isabella Martinez each had a base hit and a run scored.

The Chargers dropped the second game 5-1.

Edison is 14-10 overall and 3-5 in league.


Los Alamitos (17-8, 4-4) can forge a tie for first place in the Surf League with a win at Marina on Tuesday.

If Los Alamitos were to beat Marina, Huntington Beach could make it a three-way tie for first place with a win at Edison in its league finale.

Sage Hill 10, Foothill 8: The Lightning remained undefeated with Thursday’s nonleague win on the road.

Emin Torlic, Steven Ferry and Rohun Krishnan each swept in singles for Sage Hill (12-0), while Adam Hung and Robert Gerschultz secured the clinching 10th set in doubles.

Sage Hill concludes the regular season with San Joaquin League matches at Claremont Webb on Monday, and at home against Fairmont Prep on Tuesday.

The Sage Hill School girls’ track and field team earned second place (173 points) in the San Joaquin League finals at Claremont Webb School.

A pair of school records highlighted the Lightning’s efforts. Grace Robinson-Dorn set the school mark in the girls’ 100-meter sprints with a time of 13.04 seconds.

Robinson-Dorn went into the record book again in the 400 relay, as she was joined by Emily Lam, Sofia Lowe and Sydney McCord on a team that completed the race in 51.18 seconds.

McCord won three league titles, as she also won the 200 (27.07) and the 400 (1:02.68).

Sage Hill’s boys finished third (91.5 points) at the meet, with Zack Karro taking first in the 100 (11.53) and the high jump (5 feet, 8 inches).
