Track & Field

Lisa Painter, Head Coach

Lisa has been the head coach of the HS Track & Field team here at KCC since 2007. From 1997-2006 she coached boys & girls track at Wright Christian Academy in Tulsa, OK. From 1988-1994 she coached the boys & girls track here at KCC.

She has two quotes that she uses to encourage her athletes. “Most people have the will to win, but very few have the will to prepare.” and also “Find something that you love to do, and you never have to work a day in your life.”

Her coaching inspiration comes from Roger Thomas, her father. He coached track at Boone High School in Orlando, FL, Seminole Junior College located in Maitland, FL, and at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC. He was Lisa’s track coach from elementary though high school. He was a great example of being a firm and encouraging coach and his love for his athletes was very evident.
