Kimberly High School (KHS) is excited to announce Dave Lepisto as the next Head Coach of the girls varsity basketball team. Lepisto has served as assistant coach to the team for the last nine seasons.
"Dave is an excellent fit. His ability to build relationships is outstanding, and his communication skills, work ethic, and basketball knowledge are off the charts," said Athletic Director Ryan McGinnis. "He is an exceptional teacher of the game and life skills. We are excited for the next chapter of our Girls Basketball Program."
Lepisto holds a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse and a master's degree in education from Marian University. He has been coaching high school basketball since 1994 and served as an assistant coach for Kimberly on the boys varsity team during the 2007-2008 season. Since 2013 Lepisto has served as an assistant coach for the Kimberly girls varsity team, and in that time, the Papermakers have made two state appearances, five sectional finals and two Fox Valley Association championships.
"Kimberly girls basketball is synonymous with success," said Lepisto. "I am honored to have been chosen to lead and work with our outstanding student-athletes to continue that tradition pioneered by former coaches Fran Kasten, Lee Levknecht, Dean Simon, Cathy (Coenen) Pearson, and most recently, Troy Cullen."
