Track and Field
Since 2011, Track and Field coach Corky Dean has taught his runners to focus on goals—personal and team-oriented, short-term and long-term—and has strived to create leaders in the Kent Denver community. “Leadership comes in many forms, and at some point everyone on a team has their time to shine and show their strengths and styles of leadership,” he says.
Coach Dean believes team success at the high school level isn’t about success in competition, but rather is about character development. “I am not focused solely on performance at the high school level, but developing the athlete/individual for success well into adulthood,” he says.
Coach Dean’s teams have shown where their hard work can lead. Several of his boys and girls finished in the top 10 at the 2016 State Track Meet in addition to setting numerous school and personal records in races like the Girls 800 meter, the boys 3200 meter, and in various other individual and relay events.
Coach Dean is also a full-time member of our arts department. He teaches Photography I, II, III and IV in the Upper School. He also coaches Cross-Country in the fall.
