Of local note: Pac-12 Networks and Gunn wrestling program

 

Gunn High is seeking applications for the position of head wrestling coach. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Gunn Athletic Director Curt Johansen (cjohansen@pausd.org) as soon as possible.

The Titans placed fourth at the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League finals last and qualified nine wrestlers for the Central Coast Section. Girls' wrestler Ruby Robinson finished third in the CCS and qualified for the state meet.

There are about 50 wrestlers currently in the program, and Titans' assistant coach Dennis Chan has been part of the Dave Schultz Wrestling Club that often uses Gunn to practice.

Wrestling, basketball and soccer as the only three winter sports offered.

Best of the best

Pac-12 Networks announced its starting lineup of highly qualified talent for the 2017 fall school season, which includes men's and women's soccer, women's volleyball, field hockey, men's water polo and cross country.

Among the returning broadcasters are Greg Mescall, who works with the senior national water polo teams, Joe Castellano, a veteran of the airwaves, Kate Scott, who has worked on Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants broadcasts, Kevin Danna, a versatile announcer with a deep background in several sports, and Stanford grad Troy Clardy, who has worked on many levels of broadcasting, including hosting shows before and after A's games.

Aaron Heinzen, Ann Schaltz, Anne Marie Anderson, Christian Miles, Daron Sutton, Elise Woodward, Jim Watson, Kevin Barnett, Krista Blucnk, Leah Secondo, Mark Rogondino, Matt McConnell, Neils Sika, Rich Burk, Rich Cellini and Thad Anderson also return.

For men's water polo, you can't find a better trio of analysts than U.S. Olympic coach and two-time gold medalist Adam Krikorian, former Stanford All-American Chris Dorst, and Mescall.

Women's volleyball is also in great hands with former Stanford and Hall of Fame coach Don Shaw, Olympian Holly McPeak, and BYU grad Amy Gant.

Women's soccer gets the jump, with an array of contests on Friday beginning with defending NCAA champion USC playing UC Davis at 3 p.m.
