The Bohlender Award recognizes a women’s coach whose performance exemplifies leadership, excellence, and sportsmanship at the scholastic competitive levels.  Levoff is also head boys and girls coach at Dos Pueblos High.

Also honored was SBCC women's and San Marcos girls water polo coach Chuckie Roth. He was presented the Sandy Nitta Distinguished Coaching Award for the Coastal California Zone.  Roth guided San Marcos to the CIF-Southern Section Division 1 semifinals last winter and took the SBCC women to the California Community College State Final.

In a historic summer, Levoff led Santa Barbara Water Polo’s 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U girls teams to semifinal games at the 2016 National Junior Olympics held at Stanford University.  805’s 14U and 16U girls won gold medals. Nineteen 805 Santa Barbara water polo players were named All-American, and more than 30 Santa Barbara players compete on USA Water Polo Olympic Development Teams.  Levoff is an ODP coach for USA Water Polo’s Coastal Zone.

Levoff’s chief objective is to prepare 805 Santa Barbara players for college.  Club players who have made ormal commits so far include Paige Hauschild (USC), Kailie McGeoy (Princeton),  Brittany Prentice (Michigan), Toni Shackelford (UC Irvine) and Britni Tisdale (Azusa Pacific University).

“This is the ultimate reward for our coaching staff, placing 805 Santa Barbara players at the nation’s top universities,” said Levoff.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
