Tevah G. ’20 – WBAL Scholar-Athlete of the Year

Tevah G. ’20 – WBAL Scholar-Athlete of the Year

The Central Coast Section commissioner and staff selected scholar-athletes from each of the leagues within the Central Coast Section, and Castilleja’s Tevah G. ’20 was named the female scholar-athlete from the WBAL! 

Tevah was chosen based on her tremendous athletic and academic efforts throughout her time at Castilleja. She has primarily competed in Varsity Cross Country and Track & Field at Castilleja, and she has certainly accumulated many accolades over her years. Some of these accolades include:

Cross Country

·     Three CIF State Championship appearances – 2017, 2018, 2019

·     CCS Division V Team Champions – 2018, 2019

·     Two-time CCS Division V Individual Champion – 2017, 2018

·     CCS Division V Individual Runner-Up – 2019

·     First Team All-League – 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019

·     Palo Alto Online Athlete of the Week numerous times

·     Castilleja MVP – 2017, 2018, 2019

Track & Field

·     CCS Qualifier 2018, 2019

·     Second Team All-League – 2018, 2019

·     Castilleja MVP – 2019

*Class Day John H. Roberts III Memorial Sportsmanship Award – 2017 

Beyond her results on the cross country course and on the track, Tevah has also maintained a high grade point average while taking on many leadership roles. The recipients of this award should always display “characteristics of leadership, determination, dedication, self-sacrifice, and integrity,” and based on that, we couldn’t think of a better person than Tevah for this award and scholarship!
