New Track and Field Coach Hired

Holy Family hires Kyle Economy to lead the Fire Girls and Boys Track and Field Program

Holy Family Catholic High School in Victoria, MN, is thrilled to announce the hiring of Kyle Economy as the school’s new Head Girls and Boys Track and Field Coach.

Economy began his high school coaching career as an assistant at Holy Family in 2015, before gaining additional experience coaching in the Chaska, Delano, and Wayzata High School programs. Economy arrives with a wealth of connections in the southwest metro area, having graduated from Chaska High School where he was a multiple-time state qualifying runner in both cross country and track.  He went on to compete at the Division I level at the University of North Dakota, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Geography.  He was hired at Holy Family in the Fall of 2021 and continues to serve as a valued member of our social studies teaching faculty.

During a two-year stint as an assistant coach at Holy Family (2015-17), Coach Economy was able to leave a profound impact on the Fire running community.  2016 Holy Family Graduate, Maria Eastman, recounts the impact he had on her high school running career; “I vividly remember my teammates and myself looking forward to practice because of Kyle! His positive attitude, continuous support, and motivating coaching made our team better. [He] is a big reason my sister and I went on to run at a Division I level at the University of Minnesota. Throughout college and our current marathoning careers, [he] has always stayed in touch with us and cheered us on from near and far! “

Holy Family Activities Director Nick Tibesar echoes those sentiments from athletes in the process of welcoming Coach Economy into a new role to Holy Family. He says, “Coach Economy has shown an impressive commitment to the Holy Family mission, and to our student-athletes.  He understands the transformational impact that coaches can have in the lives of young people and is committed to serving Holy Family students in a way that empowers and encourages our students, while helping them grow in their faith. We’re excited to welcome Kyle Economy as our new Head Track and Field Coach!”
