Volleyball Head Coach

Karen Paxton

Coach Paxton attended Downers Grove South High School in Downers Grove, IL. She graduated for the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in Social Sciences.

Before coming to Katy, she was Head Coach at several locations including Grayslake High School 2000-2002, Club Elite 14’s, Texas Elite 16’s and 18’s. She came to Katy in 2001 and also teaches Pre AP World Geography.

Coach Paxton says, “I believe in building a solid volleyball program that is focused on the well-rounded athlete. We spend quality time outside of the court building self-confidence and leadership skills that our players can relate to later in their lives. It is my goal that my players look back after high school and realize the impact they made on Katy High School and our volleyball program.”

She has been married to her husband Mark for 6 years and they have two children, Sidney and William.
