It looks like it will be double duty for LaShaunda Sandifer.
The former T.F. North two-sport star is expected to be named the Meteors girls volleyball and girls basketball coach, pending approval at the the June 24 District 215 board meeting.
Principal Dwayne Evans told The Times on June 5 that she was the choice to succeed volleyball coach Peg Haney, and he and athletic director Dale Pietranczyk confirmed Monday that her name will be presented to the school board for hiring.
In girls basketball, Sandifer will succeed Chris Pruitt, who stepped down after two seasons. Sandifer works at North and is a special education paraprofessional.
Sandifer, a 2007 T.F. North grad, was The Times Female Athlete of the Year and was the Girls Basketball Player of the Year as a senior. She went to Wright State on a volleyball scholarship and played four years. She also played two years of basketball.
The schedule calls for her to face her high school coach in Tim Zasada, who is now the girls coach at Reavis.
"That just means I am getting old when your former students are coaching against you," Zasada said. "LaShaunda will do a great job because she is a hard worker and will put in the work to get the program going. She was a great athlete, but she was a great worker who put in the extra time to make herself better. I am looking forward to playing her."
Sandifer could not be reached for comment. In her senior year at North, she averaged 19.5 points and 11.8 rebounds per game in leading the Meteors to a 24-4 record and to the regional championship game.
T.F. North has not filled its baseball coaching position. Pietranczyk said candidates are being interviewed. Mike Kosiara stepped down after the 2014 season.
In other news, Washington hired Mark Morgan as its football coach, said athletic director Ish Jaquez. Morgan succeeds Jimmy Smith, who died in February. The Patriots were 5-4 last season.
