Robin Beck

Logansport High School Coach, 1977 – 99

Beck__RobinRobin Beck coached girls swimming and diving at Logansport High School from 1976 until 1989, and then at Kokomo High School from 1990 until 2000. She won multiple sectional titles at both schools.  Beck said she hung up her whistle to follow the high school careers of her children.  While at Logansport, Beck helped Heidi Hendricks become the first girl to ever win eight career individual state titles — the most possible — a feat equaled by only two girls since.  “I was surprised, yet honored,” said Beck of her selection to the Hall of Fame. “You put in a lot of work over the years when you’re a coach, and it’s nice that people recognize that.”  She lives in Kokomo now and teaches biology at Kokomo High School.  Her 4 daughters are 26, 23, 21 and 18.  She states “I may have been known as the coach that was always pregnant–in the 80’s that is.  They were swimmers before high school but then played basketball and soccer in high school and college.  I spent a lot of my free time watching their sports activities.”  Her hobbies include staying in shape (weight lifting, bike riding, aerobics), gardening, camping, knitting, scrapbooking.  Robin participated in her first triathlon at age 54.  She is married to husband Bill, and has four daughters – Ashley, Hillary, Whitney, and Meredith.  She plans to retire and live somewhere in the mountains.
