NEW COACH . . . The Gunn High girls' basketball program has a new varsity head coach, Cass Taylor, who formerly coached the JV girls at St. Francis. Taylor, who brings a wealth of experience to the game, last played at St. Francis High under coach Bill Delaney in 1986. "I have been coaching for 20 years," Taylor said. "I have been coaching at St. Francis for seven years and before that I was over at Lincoln High in San Jose. I coached all through NJB for over eight years and I was president of the Palo Alto chapter for two years. I actually coached a lot of girls that went to Gunn, so I am very familiar with the program and the history." While Gunn Athletic Director Jill Naylor has filled the position vacated by Melanie Murphy, who left to take the girls' basketball job at Sacred Heart Prep, new Palo Alto AD Jason Fung needs to find a new girls volleyball coach and a new baseball coach. Dave Winn, who guided the Vikings to back-to-back CIF state titles in 2010 and '11, left to become the new head girls volleyball coach at Mountain View. Erick Raich, who guided the Paly baseball program to its first-ever Central Coast Section title in 2011, left to become the head coach at De Anza College.
