COACH OF THE YEAR
Kelli DiMuro, Chaminade (West Hills)
California’s Open Division may be the most treacherous state tournament in the country—this year featuring two of the nation’s top five teams in then-unbeaten St. Mary’s and Miramonte—but DiMuro guided her team masterfully to the title, defeating Sabrina Ionescu and Miramonte in the final, 80-71. The Eagles finished 31-4 and ranked No. 6 in the USA TODAY’s Super 25.

She led the Matadors to 32 straight wins to open the season, and even in defeat she notched a triple-double in the Open Division state championship game, one of 10 triple-doubles on the season.
