Krista Doan

Krista Doan, Hall of Fame inductee head shot 2019

Krista attended Miami University starting in 2002, spending the first couple years on the Hamilton campus and finishing up in Oxford culminating in a Bachelor of Science degree in Education in December of 2006. While at Miami she played both softball and basketball for the Harriers….playing softball from 2003-2005 and basketball from 2002-2005. While Krista was a standout first basemen on the MUH softball team, basketball was where she left her mark for Miami Hamilton.

She led the Harriers to their first Ohio Regional Campus state tournament championship in school history in 2004 and to their first ORCC conference championship in school history in 2005.  Krista averaged just over 20 points per game and led the team in double-doubles during her years on the basketball court. Although she was part of very talented squads at Miami Hamilton, Coach Ed McCoy (an MUH hall of famer himself) said “the team would not have had the successes that it did without Krista, she was the straw that stirred the drink”.

After graduation, Krista stayed in the sports world with several coaching jobs. In 2008-2009 she was the varsity assistant softball coach at Monroe High School before taking over as the head coach at Monroe in 2009-2010. She also served as the girls’ varsity head basketball coach at Monroe from 2008-2010.

In 2012 she joined one of the premier high school coaching staffs in the area with the girl’s basketball team at Lakota West. Krista was the Varsity Assistant coach for the Firebirds from 2012 through 2016, and like Kurtis, her team won the state championship in 2015.

Krista began teaching a Monroe Junior High school in 2008 and is currently a 7th and 8th grade intervention specialist at Monroe.  While she is still involved in many programs at the junior high, she recently retired from coaching to travel and spend more time with her loving spouse.
