Surgery Sidelines Canyons' Mohney

College of the Canyons baseball Coach Len Mohney had a foot-long portion of his large intestine surgically removed Tuesday and will be sidelined for at least two weeks, Canyons Athletic Director Lee Smelser said.

Smelser said Mohney could return to the team by April 6.

"They say that after the surgery, he'll be as good as new," Smelser said. "We're planning on him coming back with no problems."

Assistant coach Andy Allensworth will manage the team in Mohney's absence. Allensworth is recovering from a broken wrist suffered when he was struck by a line drive during an alumni game earlier this season. He sports a full-length cast on his left arm.

Mohney, 32, is at Holy Cross Hospital in Mission Hills. He was hospitalized in February with intestinal inflammation and was sidelined for four days.
