Track and field coach opportunity takes Toth to Poway
By Joe Naiman
For the past two years Kim Toth has been Ramona High School’s cross country coach but was not on the track and field coaching staff, so when she received an opportunity to be a Poway High School assistant coach in both running sports, she accepted.
“It was a hard decision,” Toth said. “A good opportunity came along.”
Toth has lived in Ramona for 17 years. Her older daughter graduated from Mountain Valley Academy last year and her younger daughter, Delaney, earned a varsity cross country position as a freshman last year.
Before Toth coached the Bulldogs, she had been a coach with the So Cal Roadrunners. She became familiar with the Cortez family, whose two older daughters ran for Ramona High School before the Cortez family moved to Poway. Toth learned about discussions for Ramona High School to have separate boys and girls cross country coaches, applied and was hired to coach the Bulldogs.
Toth will be one of Poway’s assistant cross country coaches for both the boys and girls, and she will be the distance coach assistant during the Titans’ track and field season.
Delaney Toth has transferred to Poway High School and will join the cross country team after the 30-day sit-out period for transfers.
The Poway job allows Kim Toth to take her daughter to Poway High, and there are synergies with Toth’s professional position at the Frog’s fitness center in the Carmel Mountain area.
“It works out really easy for me now,” Toth said, noting the Toths continue to live in Ramona.
