Ferguson Stepping Down as Girls' Coach at Royal

June 03, 2000

Bob Ferguson of Royal High said he will not coach the girls' volleyball team next season, handing over control to his son, Travis, an assistant coach with the Highlander boys' and girls' teams.

Ferguson said he has not made a decision whether he will coach the boys' team next season.

In 18 years as girls' coach, Ferguson guided the Highlanders to six league titles and Southern Section championships in 1989 and 1998.

Ferguson said he will serve as an advisor for the girls' program.

"I still feel like I can contribute, but somebody needs to take over that day-to-day grind," he said. "Setting up schedules, practices, fund-raising takes time and effort.

"I've been here long enough. I've done it long enough. But I'm not going to be totally out of the picture."


* Bill Susdorf, a junior outfielder and relief pitcher who set a Hart High season record with 10 saves and batted .476, has been selected Foothill League player of the year.


* Ashley D'Errico, a junior catcher for Highland, has been selected Golden League player of the year.

D'Errico batted .403, leading the Bulldogs to their first league title.


* San Fernando High is sponsoring a high school summer league on Tuesdays from 6-8 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club in Pacoima. The first competition is June 13. Cost is $10 per wrestler.
