It's been such a chaotic week for Jocelyn Manderino.
Ever since she was named Fountain Valley High girls' water polo coach last month, she's felt as if she's been playing catch-up.
This past week, she could barely breathe with all the pressure and duties needed to be completed.
In addition to working in her first head coaching job, Manderino, a former Newport Harbor water polo standout, has been wearing other hats, as well.
She's an apartment manager in Tustin. As if working with teen-aged girls wasn't challenging enough, she's a single mother of two young boys.
This past week was tough indeed. She couldn't get things settled.
"Everything was up in the air and I hate when everything is up in the air," she said.
As apartment manager, she had two vacancies she needed to fill. With her team, she had been concerned and frustrated that the stomach flu had hit some of her players and they missed time.
