Callie Levin sure knows how to make a first impression.
That is just one thing on a long list of items that the Solon freshman showed she can do on the basketball court this season.
Levin earned first-team all-state honors from the Iowa Girls Coaches Association on Monday following one of the most impressive debut seasons statewide this winter.
The 5-foot-9 Levin was named to the Class 3A first-team following a freshman campaign in which she ranked seventh in Class 3A and scoring while helping the Spartans to one of the best turnarounds in the state.
A year after posting nine wins last season Solon went 17-6, won a WAMAC Conference regular season title and advanced to the Class 3A regional final.
Levin was a big reason for the Spartans’ swing this season averaging a team-high 19 points per game.
The freshman point guard did more than just score, averaging a team-high 3.7 assists and 4 steals per game while shooting a team-high 47 percent from the field.
Levin also averaged 4 rebounds per game and was a 72 percent free throw shooter while leading the Spartans in free throw attempts (106) and makes (76).
