A new girls basketball coach is seeking athletes for her upcoming team

Girls basketball season has officially started, and they’re kicking off the season with a new coach.



Joselyn Giron, #4, uses her guarding skills to not let the San Fernando player get past her.

At the end of the basketball season, the girls basketball team had to say goodbye to their JV and varsity coach, Steve Eshlemen. For a while, the girls couldn’t practice and were nervous that they wouldn’t have a new coach by the beginning of the 2023-2024 season. 

Numerous coaches came and went, but finally a new one settled in and decided to become the new girls basketball coach. Van Nuys is welcoming their new head coach, Sara Marroquin.

Coach Marroquin is coming into Van Nuys with a determined attitude to put together a team by immediately starting practice for the upcoming basketball season. 

She will be holding tryouts on May 17 and 18 in the big gym at 3:45 pm. Come and show your amazing skills to a new coach and possibly become a member of the Van Nuys girls basketball team!
