Coach of the year

MILES PRICE, Campolindo -- Price guided a young team to the program's first North Coast Section title and a share of the Diablo Foothill Athletic League crown. He took over as head coach at his alma mater four seasons ago, and Campolindo has improved ever since. He retired this year from playing professional water polo, allowing him to focus his energy on the Cougars.
