COACH LEAVES . . . The Sacred Heart Prep girls' basketball team is finishing the West Bay Athletic League season without head coach Lamont Quattlebaum, who left the team following the Jan. 29 game against Woodside for undisclosed reasons. Assistant coach Keith Halcovich was elevated to head coach on an interim basis. Halcovich has been in charge for three games, during which the Gators have gone 0-3. Heading into Friday's regular-season finale at home against Menlo School, SHP is 1-8 in the Foothill Division and 10-9 overall. Sacred Heart Prep went 0-10 in league last season and 10-18 overall, reaching the semifinals of the Central Coast Section Division IV playoffs. Quattlebaum was in his second stint as head coach of the Gators, returning for the 2009-10 season after coaching the men's basketball team at Canada College from 2004-08. His first stint at SHP started in 1997-98. He coached the Gators to the CIF Division IV state title in 1999. In 2001-02, Quattlebaum made local history by coaching the Sacred Heart Prep boys' and girls' basketball teams at the same time. He performed that duty again in 2002-03 and coached the boys in '04 before leaving for Canada College.
