Golden Valley’s second-longest serving head coach has resigned.

Courtney Carr, who has been the school’s varsity softball coach, is remaining at the school to work at its “Just Do It Center,” a homework help program.

She is also pursuing work in administration.

“It is difficult to leave after devoting the past five years to the program,” Carr said in a statement. “The hardest part is leaving the players who have worked so hard and come so far in a very tough and competitive league.”

The Grizzlies finished 6-18 this past season.

Carr led the program for four seasons, serving as an assistant for one season.

The squad is still young with its top two producers, Branndi Melero and Alexandrea Martinez, being a sophomore and freshman, respectively.

“I do leave knowing that the future is bright for Golden Valley softball,” Carr said. “Having worked through some of the difficult growing pains of a young program, I leave with the comfort of knowing that the program is ready to move on to the next level and be a competitive force in the highly regarded Foothill League.”

Golden Valley recently filled another coaching hole, though, as Jeff Cody will be the school’s girls and boys varsity volleyball head coach.

Cody was the co-head coach at Canyon for the last three seasons.

He replaces Andrew Vasquez on the girls’ side and Alex Diksas on the boys’ side at Golden Valley.

“I’m excited about the possibilities over there,” Cody said. “The opportunity to try new things and change things.”
