Sage impressive at UCLA

Huron’s Sara Sage continues to impress in just her sophomore year at UCLA - the ninth-ranked team in the nation.

Sage recorded eight kills for UCLA, as the ninth-ranked Bruins swept Western Michigan, 25-17, 25-14, 25-15 on Saturday night, but then fell to seventh-ranked Hawaii 25-23, 25-18, 25-22 on Sunday to gain a split on the weekend.

Sage played in 26 matches and 78 sets as a freshman last season, including making 18 starts. She was named to the Pacific-10 Conference All-Freshman honorable mention team. She led the Bruins in blocks in a match four times.

At Huron, she was a four-year letterwinner and three-time All-Ohio, All-District and All-Sandusky Bay Conference selection. She led Ohio and broke the single-season school kills record as a junior with 531. She’s recorded 1,343 kills in her career, which is third all-time in Ohio.

Pretty impressive being that she was injured nearly two years of her high school career.

Stay tuned for a College Insider feature on Sage in upcoming weeks.
