Holy Family hires Kristin Sankovitz to lead the Fire Girls Golf Program
We are pleased to announce the hiring of Kristin Sankovitz as the school’s new head girls golf coach.
Kristin Sankovitz grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the daughter of a PGA golf professional. She played high school varsity golf and participated in local, state and national tournaments before attending Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois on a golf scholarship.
Coach Sankovitz graduated magna cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School and practiced law for eight years before starting a family with her husband, James. They have two sons and live in Chaska, Minnesota. She was an active member of Pax Christi Catholic Community, St. Hubert Catholic Community, and currently serves as a greeter and catechist at St. Victoria Parish Family. Kristin enjoys playing and teaching golf and is a four-time Bearpath women’s club champion.
For the past two seasons, she assisted in coaching the back to back State Champion Holy Family Boys Golf team and also teaches junior golf at the Hanneman Golf Academy during the summer.
Holy Family Activities Director Nick Tibesar thrilled to welcome Sankovitz as the new head coach of Holy Family’s Girls Golf program. “Coach Sankovitz brings our program a lifetime of experience playing and teaching golf at a high-level, and more importantly, a commitment to supporting and developing the young women in our program. Her proven success as a Big Ten athlete, a practicing attorney, and an assistant coach for our two boys state champion teams is impressive, and her record of service and connections in the community are invaluable assets as she begins her tenure as our new head girls golf coach!”
