Canyon High School filled in some gaps with the hiring of two head coaches and the shifting of another.

As a result, Canyon’s girls volleyball, girls golf and softball varsity teams all have new head coaches, the school announced Wednesday.

Brian Ingino is returning to the helm of the girls volleyball team after he previously coached the squad from 2005-2011.

He’ll be taking over for Brandon Johnson, who stepped down after two seasons with the girls volleyball team and one with the boys team.

Ingino has spent the past two seasons as head coach of the varsity girls golf team and the last three years as head of the boys golf teams. He’ll continue coaching the boys golf team in the spring.

Prior to coaching Canyon, Ingino played volleyball at the school from 1995-98.

Meanwhile, former varsity golf assistant David Toshimitsu will take over as girls golf coach in the fall season.

Toshimitsu has been working with both of the golf teams for the last four years.

He takes over a girls team which has finished sixth in the Foothill League each of the last two years under Ingino.

Finally, Canyon announced the hiring of Tim Melton as the varsity softball head coach after previous coach Dwain Whalen resigned following four years heading the varsity team.

Melton comes to Canyon after multiple assistant softball coaching stints at both Hart High and Canyon High.

Most recently, Melton served as the varsity assistant softball coach at Hart since 2010. He’s held various assistant high school softball coaching positions since 2000.

Canyon went 55-54 under Whalen and didn’t make any playoff appearances.

With Johnson stepping down as both girls and boys volleyball head coach, that leaves the boys volleyball position still available.

Applicants are still being considered for the job, Canyon assistant principal Jason d’Autremont said.

In Johnson’s two years with the girls volleyball team, Canyon finished a combined 6-18 and the boys team finished 9-11 in his one season as head coach.

Neither team wound up any better than fifth in the Foothill League.
