Levin, who signed professionally recently with Goteborg FC in Sweden, played in eight games for the Blues. Levin, a Newport Coast resident who graduated from Stanford last spring, was a first-team All-American for the Cardinal. She helped Stanford earn the school's first NCAA title in 2011, when she had four goals and seven assists. She assisted on the game-winning goal in a 1-0 NCAA title-game triumph over Duke.
