New opportunities for Coach Harris

Harris begins coaching career at BU
Kit as the new Baker coach.

Behind the mind of the coach that earned rings, BHS longtime coach Kit Harris has moved on to the collegiate level.

Harris one of the most winning coaches in Baldwin High School history. He is now transitioning to college level coaching in the coming years. He will now be going to Baker University in Baldwin City to coach their women’s wrestling team.

“It’s different, yes, it’s a higher level of competition with very dedicated athletes but it’s still the same sport,” Harris said.

Harris has been in the Baldwin/Baker area all his life. He grew up across the street from the Baker campus. He and his family have been a Baker family for most of their lives.

“I’ve been a Baker person all my life, my family has always been a Baker family,” he said. “It has been a second home for me.”

His major goals for the sport of wrestling are to strive for winning and making people better at the sport and also better people in their lives.

“To see them grow in the sport and overcome challenges, let the sport help them become stronger and better people,” he said. “The victories are a great feeling, but it’s the experiences along the way, that is what it is all about. I like working with young people, it is a lot of fun.”

He loves winning, and loves seeing kids grow as a person and a wrestler. When they also overcome challenges and have them become stronger, better, more driven people. He  has many memories about people he has coached.

“There are a lot, state championships, as a team and also individual, state and national success,” he said. “But those are just a small part of it. I have coached hundreds of young student-athletes and all have been enjoyable to coach because of what they achieved and overcame along the way. They were a part of the great sport of wrestling. They helped the sport be better and the sport helped them be better. I have a million awesome memories coaching every single athlete I have ever coached.”
