Linda Hagen, Leffingwell Christian High School--The athletic director at the private Norwalk school responded to an item in Sports Shorts last week that announced that baseball coach Larry Randall had not been rehired. Hagen says that Paul Kosareff--who coached the team in 1986--will be returning as basball coach in 1988. Kosareff left after one year at the school because he was not offered a teaching position, she said. He will return as a part-time coach again.
