Hannah Kendrick, Athletic Trainer

Hometown: Palm Bay, FL/Shanghai, China
High School: Covenant Christian School & Heritage High School
Years in Position: 1st at Cibola, 5th as an Athletic Trainer
Why Athletics: "I grew up playing sports and was always injured. I wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon, but then after my own shoulder surgery in high school, I decided I wanted to be a physical therapist after how much my PT inspired me and helped me through my rehab and recovery. Then, when working with the women’s basketball team in undergrad at the University of Miami, one of the athletes I had become close with tore her ACL in front of me at practice. I got to know her BEFORE she got injured, was there WHEN she got injured, was actually in the operating room assisting the surgeons during her surgery, was there for every single day of her rehab and recovery, and then got to see her in her first game back on the court. That is when I realized that being an athletic trainer is the perfect career for me to be able to see athletes BEFORE, DURING, and THROUGH an injury, share in both their pains and their successes."

Why Coaching: "I love the challenge of trying to better the lives of young kids and sports allows me to reach kids on a different level than in a classroom. Sports can help shape the mindset of young kids for the better, which can carry over into their personal lives. Giving kids a sense of belonging and importance can help build a young kids self esteem that will last for years."

Kristin Collins, Golf (Girls)

Hometown: Walworth, WI
High School: Big Foot High School
Years in Position: 1
Why Coaching: "Golf is a game of honesty and integrity, which are two core values that should guide all of our actions, both on the course and in life. Being part of a sport promotes resilience, persistence, and preparation. These characteristics will serve our athletes well in the future. I hope that we can cultivate their leadership skills through our golf program, and send them into the world with a sense of confidence in all that they do. Finally, golf has taken me to beautiful places and I hope that these ladies continue finding joy and peace on courses long after they leave Cibola."
