SAMOHI — For the second time, Santa Monica High School has announced a new head softball coach.
The search to replace Debbie Skaggs, who retired after leading the Vikings for 24 seasons, appeared to be over last month when Samohi announced that Natalie Adame would take over as head coach. But, Samohi Athletic Director Daniel Escalera said that the two parties couldn’t come to terms and continued to review applicants.
Escalera decided to offer the position to Marybell Moreno. He said that Moreno may start as soon as this week. She was in the initial group of finalists for the position.
Samohi is the defending California Interscholastic Southern Section Division 4 champions. It was the first softball CIF title in school history.
