Coach of the Year

Tony Tovani,

San Ramon Valley

In his first year with the Wolves, Tovani had his team playing its best water polo at the end of the season. The Wolves got beaten by De La Salle for the East Bay Athletic League title but came back and beat the Spartans 14-11 to advance to the North Coast Section Division I title game for the second year in a row. In the final, San Ramon Valley faced Miramonte. The Wolves lost on a last-second shot after losing 11-6 to the Matadors earlier in the year. Tovani's first season also included a championship at the Roche Invitational.
