Chatsworth High won or shared three consecutive league championships in as many seasons under boys' basketball Coach Sandy Greentree. Was it good enough? Capping a tumultuous season, Greentree resigned Thursday, denying that he was eaten by the monster he created.

The installment of Sandy Greentree as boys' basketball coach at Chatsworth High hit a snag late last week when Greentree learned that he probably would not be granted release time from his teaching position at Birmingham. Greentree, 35, who led Marshall High to a City Section 3-A Division title in 1986 but has not coached the past five seasons, said his request to leave Birmingham in the afternoons to coach at Chatsworth has been denied by the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Former Cal State Northridge assistant Wayne Fluker turned down the varsity boys' basketball position at Chatsworth High, a Chatsworth official said Friday. The official, who wished not to be identified, said that Fluker, 34, turned down the offer for personal reasons. Fluker could not be reached for comment. Fluker was a Northridge captain during his two seasons, from 1983-85, and was twice selected the team's most inspirational player.

After nine seasons as an assistant coach for two successful programs, Bort Escoto was named to replace Jose Fernandez as the Sylmar High basketball coach. Fernandez left Sylmar to take a high school coaching position in Northern California. Escoto, 28, who at 18 began as an assistant at Cleveland High, is the fourth coach in five years at Sylmar and will inherit a team that finished 13-10 and won the Mid-Valley League championship. It was the school's first league title in basketball since 1971.

Sandy Greentree, who compiled a 104-45 record in seven seasons at Marshall High, has been named basketball coach at Chatsworth. Greentree led Marshall to a City Section 3-A Division title in 1986, then announced his retirement, citing burnout. He has since experienced the other end of the spectrum. "It started getting a little boring," said Greentree, 35, who coached Marshall from 1979-86. "It remains to be seen if I'm in this for the long haul, but I'm glad to be back."

Chatsworth High basketball players learned something in Wednesday's 61-52 win over Kennedy in a Northwest Valley Conference opener. Something to stuff in their duffel bags and carry with them the rest of the season. The Chancellors outhustled the host Golden Cougars, outshot them from the field and beat them to every loose ball . . . for the first 28 minutes. "For the first 3 1/2 quarters, I felt like we had control," Chatsworth Coach Sandy Greentree said.

Calls to the principal's office at Cleveland High came in a steady stream just one day after basketball Coach Bob Braswell announced that he was leaving the school to become an assistant at Cal State Long Beach. Ida Mae Windham, Cleveland's principal, said the list of prospects was growing fast Tuesday afternoon, and Braswell predicted that she would receive "100 more calls." Sandy Greentree, who guided Marshall High to the City Section 3-A Division championship three years ago, was among the first to inquire about the vacant position, Braswell said.

Chatsworth High's chances of winning the Chaminade basketball tournament Saturday rode on the Chancellors' ability to stop San Francisco Riordan's Jaha Wilson. And at the end of the first quarter, Chatsworth seemed more than ready for the challenge, having held the talented center to just two free throws.

When Reseda High's Marquis Burns has a hot hand, it takes more than a great defensive effort to extinguish the fire. Chatsworth found that out the hard way Wednesday as Burns scored 33 points in the host Regents' 66-59 victory in a West Valley League basketball game. Everything seemed to fall for the UCLA-bound senior swingman, who scored 12 of Reseda's 14 points in the first quarter. He converted turnaround jump shots and off-balance jump shots.
