Krista Pearman has been Head Coach of the girls’ soccer team since 2007. She has also served as JV girls’ soccer and JV girls’ basketball coach and varsity boys’ soccer assistant coach.
Coach Pearman believes high school sports allow students to meet other students they wouldn’t otherwise meet in the classroom, and they allow them to work together and solve problems differently than in the classroom. They also allow students to grow into leaders.
“There is no better way to teach leadership, perseverance and motivation than athletics. Being a singular part of something bigger is a concept that is really practiced on the field,” says Coach Pearman.
Since coming to Kent Denver in 2006, Coach Pearman's girls’ soccer teams have qualified for the State Tournament every year except one. Her teams won the State Championship in 2016, back-to-back Championships in 2006 and 2007, and have been to the semi-finals four times. One national All-American and three regional All-Americans have come from her teams.
Coach Pearman won the Metro League Female Coach of the Year—awarded to the best coach in all female sports—in 2012 and 2013. Coach Pearman also played soccer for the Women’s Premier Soccer League as a member of the Rhode Island Rays.
