Meet the Coaches
Ken Berry has been a cherished member of the Alverno community having started his coaching career here in 1999 as a cross country coach. In 2001 he added coaching for the soccer team to his list of responsibilities here at Alverno after coaching for AYSO during the mid ’90s. Berry has pioneered several programs on campus including teaching a conditioning class for PE credits; the cross country summer camps; and, perhaps most impactful, the track & field team in 2007. In 2009, Berry was named Athletic Director of Alverno and continues to proudly serve the community in that role in addition to his coaching and teaching duties.
