Former head coach Kevin Stroh begins his 13th season at the helm of a Viking program that is coming off its fourth straight Top-10 State finish. The 2019-2020 team returns two state medalists and four state qualifiers in what looks to be another strong year for the Vikings. The 2018-2019 team consisted of two state medalists, four state qualifiers and two first-time ever girl state qualifiers. The 2017-2018 team won the GAC South division title, and were crowned District champs, before capping the season with 9 State qualifiers, and an 8th place finish in Missouri Class 4. During his career, Stroh has coached twenty-eight all-state wrestlers including four state champions and eleven finalists.
Stroh is a 1995 graduate of Francis Howell High School where he was a Post-Dispatch All-Metro selection, and the first wrestler to win four Gateway Athletic Conference titles. As a senior, he was 37-0 and won the Class 4A state title at 189 pounds. Stroh wrapped up his four year career at Howell with a record of 131-14. A four time state qualifier, Stroh placed fifth at state as a sophomore and lost in the title match as a junior.
After high school, Stroh took his talents to Columbia, MO., where he wrestled for the University of Missouri Tigers. There he was awarded the 1997 Marshall Esteppe Most Outstanding Freshman award.
Stroh is married to his wife Lisa. Together they have two sons, Teddy & Scotty.
