Willits dedicating gym to longtime coach

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Willits High will dedicate its gym to Steve Short, a longtime coach at the school, at halftime of its varsity girls’ basketball game against Middletown.
Short was a coach and PE teacher at Willits from 1972 until his retirement in 2008. He coached every sport at the school besides swimming, tennis, cross country and volleyball. Short, a Willits alum, has been connected with the school for nearly 50 years. He began attending Willits in 1960 as a seventh grader in the days when the school had a junior high.
