Bevins, an assistant coach the past few seasons, replaces veteran coach Mustafa Hassan. Bevins will also coach girls swim at Rosary.
Rosary’s girls water polo team reached the CIF-SS Division 2 quarterfinals last season, falling to eventual champion Santiago of Corona.
The Royals could be strong again in 2012-13 with the return of junior goalie Jessica Hermosillo and sophomores Anastacia Gonzalez and Katie Tijerina as a base.
Bevins graduated from Servite in 2005 and was a three-time All-CIF performer. As a senior in 2004, he was co-MVP of the old Serra League and second-team All-County.
His sister, Bernadette also played water polo at Rosary and now plays at UC Santa Barbara for Coach Cathy Neushul. From a water polo family, Bevins’ brothers, Vincent, and, Hugh, were strong water polo players Servite.
