Buena Park Football Coach Saiz Resigns

Manny Saiz, Buena Park’s football coach for the past four seasons, resigned Tuesday for personal reasons, Athletic Director Dan Hirsch said.

Saiz, 32, compiled a 12-8 league record and led the Coyotes to the first round of the playoffs in three of his four seasons.

“His dedication will be missed,” Hirsch said. “He did a lot of work in the weight room and did a lot of fund-raising and was hard-working in his four years. We wish him luck.”


Savanna High has hired Juan Villa to be its boys’ soccer coach, Athletic Director Larry Anderson said.

He replaces Jose de la Cruz, who resigned at the end of the season. Villa, 28, formerly coached at Cerritos High.



Amie Prichard, who played in the hole for the women’s water polo team at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, announced Tuesday that she will attend UC Irvine.

An All-Coast Conference first-team selection, Prichard expects to play driver for the Anteaters, she said.
