The Coronado Girls Basketball team has been practicing, preparing for the 2011-2012 season... but without a head coach. Coach Chris Peden is a 14-year veteran of Coronado High School, but recently underwent major back surgery, and is out indefinitely. That leaves the coaching duties to Assistant and JV Coach Jonathan Hutchins. Hutchins and Peden discuss the team daily.
"Just making sure it's done the right way and done the way he wants it. We talk everyday to make sure that his plan and vision of where we need to be is fulfilled."
Coronado was 26-8 last season, 13-3 and second in District 1-5A. It's been tough, but veterans, like junior Monica Holguin, are helping push forward before the regular season starts. "We're nervous right now, because we know how hard it is not to have a head coach, but we have to go through it, we're going to work hard and go at it and go hard."
Tuesday, November 8, Coronado opens the season at Parkland at 7:00pm.
