Quattlebaum leaves SHP girls' basketball program

 

The Sacred Heart Prep girls' basketball team is finishing the season without head coach Lamont Quattlebaum, who resigned after the Jan. 29 win over Woodside game for undisclosed reasons. Assistant coach Keith Halcovich was elevated to head coach on an interim basis.

Halcovich has been in charge for two games, during which the Gators have gone 0-2. Heading into Tuesday night's home game against West Bay Athletic League co-leader Eastside Prep, SHP is 1-7 in the Foothill Division and 10-8 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 2008-09 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 a 30-6 record and the CIF Division IV state title in 1999 and was 29-6 the following season, during which the Gators were ranked No. 2 in the state in Division IV.

In 2001-02, Quattlebaum made local hoop 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.

Quattlebaum was 34-37 in the past 2 1/2 years at SHP.
