Milestone 300th Win for Field Hockey Coach Kathy James


On Fri., Oct. 19, legendary Kent Denver field hockey coach Kathy James notched her 300th win as the Sun Devils defeated East High School by a score of 3-1 in the first round of the CHSAA state playoffs.

Coach James first took the helm of Kent Denver's field hockey program in 1996 and has since amassed more wins than any other field hockey coach in Colorado history. Her teams have also won a record 10 state titles since the sport was officially sanctioned in Colorado in 1997.

CHSAAnow.com calls Coach James "among the state's most impactful coaches in any sport," and her legions of players certainly agree. Congratulations from the entire KDS community on this milestone 300th win!
