FH women’s hoops to resume next fall

Although Foothill College has a new women’s basketball coach in Anna Harp, she doesn’t have a team this season. “Anna was hired as head coach late summer at a time when most of the community college-bound athletes had made their school choices and were attending other colleges,” athletic director Mike Teijeiro said. “I didn’t feel it was appropriate to bring a new coach aboard with diminished recruiting opportunities and little time to scramble a roster together.” Suspending play this season gives Harp more time to recruit 2020 high school graduates to fill next year’s team, Teijeiro added.
