A few new faces will grace the sidelines for the upcoming winter and spring seasons at Laguna Beach High.
Laguna hired new coaches for the 2011-12 school year in girls' basketball, softball and baseball, Athletic Director Mike Churchill said. Mark Lewis has been selected to head the girls' basketball program, Alan Ludloff the softball program and Mike Bair the baseball program.
"We are very happy to have these three coaches in place for our athletes this year," Churchill said. "The common thread is that each of these coaches has worked with our present athletes in the past and know what the role of the student-athlete is at Laguna Beach High School. Continuity and stability were important, but the respect that our athletes hold for these coaches made it easy to promote them to the head coach's position."
