Paul LaBlanc resigned as wrestling coach at Saddleback High to become Dean of Students at El Toro High. LaBlanc, who guided the Roadrunners to the Sea View League title in 1992, was the head coach at Saddleback for five years.

LaBlanc also coached wrestling at Cal State Fullerton, Orange Coast College and Fountain Valley, Sonora, Troy and Marina high schools. He graduated from Fountain Valley in 1971 and was an NAIA All-American for Southern California College in 1975. LaBlanc was a silver medalist at the Pan American games in 1983.

Doug Deats, a 1980 graduate of Costa Mesa High, has been named the school's baseball coach. Deats, the school's fifth baseball coach in six years, is the first on-campus coach the program has had since 1980.

"We made that our No. 1 priority," Athletic Director Myron Miller said. "Hopefully we won't be dealing with that statistic anymore."

Deats coached the last two years at Downey Warren and has coached previously at University of Redlands, Cal State Long Beach, Chino High School and La Verne. He inherits a program that finished 3-22 and 0-15 in the Pacific Coast League under Don Hunt.

Because of suspensions, the Los Angeles Salsa will be without two starters for Saturday's game against Vancouver at Cal State Fullerton.

Jose Vasquez, a defenseman, and Thor Lee, a midfielder, will be forced to sit under American Professional Soccer League rules. Vasquez is out because he received a red card in the Salsa's 2-0 victory over Montreal last Friday. Lee is out because he got a yellow card, his fifth of the season, in the same game. Under APSL rules, players that get five yellow cards must sit out one game.
