Bessler Back to Coach Volleyball at Van Nuys

September 09, 1997

Dave Bessler has been rehired as coach of the Van Nuys High girls' volleyball team. Bessler resigned after the Wolves were removed from the City Section 4-A Division playoffs last season for using an ineligible player.

Patricia Denny replaced Bessler, but she stepped down last week when she decided to enter a two-year teacher credential program.

Stepping up: Courtney Miller, Westlake High's 6-foot-2 volleyball standout, has decided to play on an injured left foot, postponing surgery until after her senior season.

Swarming: Jay Kirchoff made four field goals to lift the Simi Valley Swarm (3-1) to a 12-6 victory over the Utah Panther-Catzz in a Pacific Football League game Saturday at Simi Valley High.

Foot notes: Nicole Bucciarelli (Grant High) scored twice Sunday to lead the UC Irvine women's soccer team past Cal State Northridge, 4-1, at Irvine.

Former Thousand Oaks High standout Shannon Thomas gave UCLA (4-0) a 1-0 lead Sunday in a 3-0 nonconference victory over Pepperdine (1-2).

Britt Christensen scored three goals and Moorpark College routed Porterville, 12-0, Sunday in a women's nonconference match.

The Cal State Northridge men's team (0-3) surrendered a free-kick goal in the 93rd minute Sunday and lost to Gonzaga, 2-1, in overtime at the Nevada Las Vegas tournament.
