Kest has amassed nearly 400 victories in her coaching career, highlighted by registering at least 19 wins in three consecutive campaigns (2014-16). She has guided Akron to four postseason berths in the past five seasons (NCAA 2014, WNIT 2013, 2015 and 2016) and five overall postseason appearances in the last eight years. Under Kest’s tutelage, Akron has become well-known for its up-tempo style of play and has established itself as one of the top-scoring teams in the country.
