Swim Director and Coach, Elementary AD
Kristin Hill is the elementary school Athletic Director, Director of CVCS Boys and Girls Swim Team and Elementary Track & Field. She graduated from the University of Puget Sound (BS) and University of Colorado (MS). Kristin swam competitively at the club and high school level, and eventually earned a swimming scholarship at the collegiate level. As a collegiate swimmer she was a 25-time NAIA All-American, competing at the NAIA National Championships 1990-1994. Kristin was hired by the athletic department at Boise State in 2006 to be the inaugural head coach of the Boise State Swimming and Diving program. By the fourth year of the program, her team improved dramatically and would begin a winning streak that included four conference championships (2010, 2011 in the WAC, 2012, 2014 in the Mountain West), as well as multiple NCAA Championship competitors from 2009-2015. Her team earned five NCAA All American honors, as well as 34 individual and relay conference titles. She was named conference coach of the year in 2010 (WAC) and 2011 (Mountain West). Her teams were annually among the top academic performers in the country, recognized as Scholar All-American Teams by the Collegiate Swimming Coaches Association of America for seven straight years (2009-2015). Prior to her work at Boise State, Hill was the assistant swimming and diving coach at Texas A&M University from 2000-2006, coaching a team that finished 11th at the NCAA Championships in 2006. She coached 17 All Americans, 9 Academic All Americans, and one USA Swimming National Champion. Their dual meet record was 53-18 over six years. From 2000-2015, she coached 19 U.S. Olympic Trial qualifiers and multiple Canadian national team members. She was a member of the 2005 Estonian National Team coaching staff member at European Championships in Italy. From 1997-2000 she was Head Men's and Women's Swimming and Diving Coach at Colorado School of Mines (Golden, CO), coaching one NCAA honorable mention All American. She loves coaching and teaching at CVCS because she is able to clearly incorporate Jesus' life into each area that we teach and coach. Competing for God is so much more fulfilling than competing for yourself, your parents, or your coaches. When a student athlete understands that all of their gifts are from God, their sport can become a form of worship to thank God for everything He has given them.
