Under Coach Adam Levine, Palisades’ Reign Looks Far from Over
It’s hard to imagine a more successful start to a coaching tenure than the one Adam Levine has experienced at Palisades High.
Levine has guided the girls basketball team to back-to-back City titles and two straight 26-win seasons, and with all but one player returning next year he could be building a dynasty.
“The only player graduating is Jane [Nwaba] and as great and as valuable as she is we could be really good again next year,” Levine said. “Ivy Scott, who missed all of last year with an ACL injury, continues to get better. Add another center [Janelly Portillo] who was out most of this year, Taylor and Elise Arnold making a freshman- to-sophomore jump, and full summer and fall to get better… the sky is the limit with this group.”
Levine praised his assistant coaches for the squad’s preparation both mentally and physically: “Don Burke has been a CIF-winning head coach his whole career and has really helped make me a better coach. And Al Mont, who joined our staff this year, has also been a head coach and coached on CIF championship teams.”
