In his first season, Leventry guided the Shorewomen to a 19-9 overall record - its best since 1977 - and a 5-5 Centennial Conference mark, its best since 1993. The team matched that 19-9 record in Leventry's second season in 2014.

In his five years as the Shorewomen's head coach, the team has finished above .500 four times.
Leventry served as the Shorewomen's associate head coach during the 2012 season, handling the majority of the day-to-day strategic duties of the program, as well as recruiting, and helped guide the Shorewomen to a 12-15 overall record. Washington went 4-6 in Centennial Conference play in 2012, its best conference mark since 1994, and defeated perennial conference power Gettysburg College for the first time since 1977.
Leventry has an extensive background in collegiate, high school, and club coaching. Prior to arriving at Washington College, he had most recently served as an assistant volleyball coach at Goucher College during the 2010 and 2011 seasons. His duties included recruiting as well as developing the team's setters and defensive specialists. During his time at Goucher, he recruited and trained two All-Landmark Conference players.
From 2005 to 2009, Leventry put together an impressive run as head volleyball coach at Severna Park High School, compiling a win-loss record of 57-13 and winning Anne Arundel County Championships in 2007 and 2009. Under his guidance, two Severna Park players earned Anne Arundel County Player of the Year honors and several others received All-Metro and All-County recognition.
Since 2003, Leventry has also served as a head coach for Bay Area Volleyball Academy (BAVA), a youth volleyball club in Anne Arundel County. Leventry has coached teams in four age groups, from 15 to 18, for BAVA. His teams have won numerous volleyball tournaments within the region.
