Spanish River dismisses girls basketball coach 

By Matt Porter

First-year Spanish River girls basketball coach Len Edelman has been replaced.

Athletic director Kevin McEnroe said Monday that Jennifer Heldt, a 24-year-old science teacher at the school, will run the team for the rest of the season.

Neither Edelman nor McEnroe would comment on the record.

Heldt had acted as a student liaison and assistant coach for Edelman, a first-year coach who previously coached several club basketball teams in the area.

The Sharks were 11-11 at the time of Edelman’s dismissal.
