I most enjoy teaching student-athletes to excel not only in the sport of running, but to mature and thrive in their education. Dos Pueblos High School Cross Country and Track and Field teams are truly a community of runners with a purpose of personal growth and support beyond the track and trail. “Thank you, coach, for the workouts and for making me a better person.” Trevor Katz, student, DPHS.

Libby Gans Assistant Coach
Coaching experience - Last year was my first year, but learning all the time Racing experience - High school Cross Country and Track, Road and trail races as an adult Running experience - Life long love of running, from kid to adult, nothing beats it I have been a fan of Dos Pueblos Cross Country for many years. I’ve had two daughters on the team and have enjoyed and immensely valued the experience and friendships both girls found with DPXC. DPXC taught them the value of hard work, athleticism, commitment, camaraderie, and leadership. This is what I strive to impart to every runner on our team.
