Hill is LCHS track team’s new jumps coach – Reuters Sports News


LCHS track and field coach Jose Pope welcomes Zack Hill as the new jumps coach.

Coach Hill is a 2011 graduate of LCHS where he placed second in the high jump during his junior and senior years. He then represented LCHS at EKU where he placed 2nd in the OVC Conference Championship for Indoor and Outdoor High Jump with a PR of 6’9″.

Hill still holds the high jump record at LCHS with an impressive 6’7″. He also played basketball as a Patriot and is part of the 1,000 point club.

Coach Hill said: “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to coach in the place that started my sporting career. I learned teamwork, discipline and above all integrity at LCHS and I plan to incorporate what I learned not only there but at EKU into our athletes.

Coach Hill currently resides in Nicholasville with his wife Alex and their 7 month old daughter, Leighton. He hopes to return to Lincoln County eventually, but for now he says he’s just glad to be back on his turf doing what he loves.
