HONOR COACH . . . Dave Winn has accomplished a lot during his five years as head coach of the Palo Alto girls' volleyball team. His squad reached the Central Coast Section semifinals his first three seasons before reaching the finals last year after compiling a 33-match winning streak and finishing with a 36-5 record, the most victories in school history. Now, Winn has his team primed for even greater accomplishments as the Vikings opened the week with a 32-1 record and a No. 67 national ranking after winning their sixth straight tournament title over two seasons. Not too surprisingly, Winn last week was among five recipients of the 2010 CCS Fall Sports Honor Coaches Awards. The honor is presented to those coaches who their colleagues have made outstanding contributions to that sport at their school, within their league, in the community and to the CCS. At the time of nomination, they must be actively coaching and have been coaching in their respective sport for a minimum of five years at the varsity level. Beginning this week, Winn was 50-8 in SCVAL De Anza Division action and 155-33 overall. He previously coached at Los Altos and Pinewood, and continues to coach with the City Beach Volleyball Club. He also serves as the SCVAL volleyball rep to CCS. Winn has been involved with the USYVL and youth volleyball camps. He has won five AVCA Academic Team awards and has been named Coach of the Year by various local publications.
