Athletics Adds Two Familiar Faces to Coaching Staff

The Mariner Athletic department is excited to announce the hiring of head coaches for the girls’ volleyball and boys’ and girls’ cross country programs for the 2017-2018 seasons. 
SMCHS has elevated Don Hackett from assistant girls’ and boys’ volleyball coach to the head coach of the girls’ varsity team. Coach Hackett has been involved with both the boys’ and girls’ volleyball teams for five years and contributed to four league championships with the Mariner volleyball programs.
Coach Hackett has been very passionate about SMCHS and its volleyball programs. His tireless work ethic, familiarity with our school community and overall knowledge of the sport make him the ideal coach to lead our program to new heights.
In the sport of cross country, the Mariners welcome back Dan Schuman. Coach Schuman rejoins the program he began to build two years ago when he led the Mariner boys’ team to the CIF prelims and the girls’ team to the CIF finals.
Mariner volleyball will start its 2017 campaign in late August while the first cross country meet is set for September 1.
