Nimz introduced as new head women's basketball coach

The search is over for the new head coach of the Kilgore College women’s basketball program.

Anna Nimz was introduced to the Kilgore community at a press conference April 21 as the new Lady Rangers' coach.

"I'm big about family," Nimz said. "And today, I am joining a new family -- The Kilgore College family."

Nimz comes to KC from Kansas where she was head coach of Labette Community College in Parsons, Kan., since 2010.

“My experience at Labette as the head coach has afforded me the opportunity to grow as a leader and a coach,” Nimz said. “When I first heard of the opening at Kilgore I inquired immediately.  I truly believe I am ready to take on a new challenge.  I have learned what it takes to build a program and develop young women as student-athletes.”

Nimz also served as assistant athletic director for LCC since 2012. LCC competes in the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Jayhawk Conference, known nationally as one of the nation’s toughest junior college basketball conferences.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in 2008 and master’s degree in 2009 from Pittsburg State University (Kan.) where she was also an assistant women’s basketball coach from 2008-10.

Nimz takes over for Roy Thomas who coached the Lady Rangers for nine seasons.
