No mention of the former MAHS swim coach that successfully led the our athletes for so many years? Why the partial story Almanac? Disappointing to say the least.

What I am more curious about is why the Job was never posted and opened to other qualified applicants? This job was handed to her, and it seems, to expand an ever existing large aquatic program that functions at more than 5 pools already.
I would love to see if the Almanac would follow up on my question and ask the school, M-A and the Sequoia High School District, why the job was handed to someone.
