SMA is pleased to have Mr. Steve Hirtzel join us as the new Head Tennis Coach for the 2020-2021 school year. Coach Hirtzel will coach both girls and boys programs. Coach Hirtzel brings 10 yrs experience coaching high school tennis. In 2011, he helped start the girls and boys tennis programs from scratch at KC Lutheran. He then moved into the varsity assistant tennis coach at Barstow High School in KC, MO. Coach Hirtzel has had a love for tennis since high school and is excited to lead our tennis program to new levels of success! Coach Hirtzel lives in Peculiar with his wife Sarah and has two grown daughters who teach in special education and two step daughters who also work in the KC Metro area.
