Claremont High School girls volleyball had somewhat of a mixed week, losing their head coach, but snapping back to win their first round CIF playoff match against visiting Palm Desert.
The Pack’s celebrated coach Jodi Postlmayr, who was in her first semester leading the girls team, abruptly quit last week to take a full time teaching job. According to school officials, after Ms. Postlmayr accepted the position assuming she would be able to see Claremont through the CIF playoffs, but was ordered by her new employer to sever all ties with CHS immediately. Mark Mina, above, who also leads the junior varsity team, will take over as head coach at least through the end of the playoffs.
