Duncan officially coach at Summit

Not that it’s much of a shock, but LaTrina Duncan was officially named the permanent head girls basketball coach at Summit High School yesterday according to a text I received from her this morning. This was pretty much assumed to be Summit’s course of action once Alexis Barile – who went on maternity leave in January – said that she wasn’t going to reassume the position, but it’s finally official.

Duncan, the all-Sun girls basketball coach of the year, was an assistant under Chris Stephens at Chaffey College and Los Osos High School prior to taking a job as Summit’s JV coach this past offseason. She took over the SkyHawks on January 7 when Barile went into labor with twins 10 weeks premature and led Summit to a Sunkist League championship, the Division 1-A finals and the Division I SoCal regional semifinals.
