Founding Coach Suter

Kevin Suter started the Stone Bridge High School rowing team with the support of his wife Chris.

He started coaching rowing while attending Marietta College where his freshman boat came in third at the Dad Vail Regatta. Suter was also the Head Coach for Briar Woods High School when they started their program. Suter holds a Level II Coaching Certification from USROWING

He was fortunate to grow up in a rowing family where he started rowing for his father Robert Suter at LaSalle High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Suter spent his summers in High School rowing for PennAC for Coach Chuck Crawford.

Suter rowed for four years for Marietta College boating the freshman eight and then the varsity lightweight eight. Following college, Coach Suter rowed for Undine Boat Club and Wilmington Rowing Center prior to moving to Ashburn where he was the first person to start rowing on the Beaver Dam Reservoir. Coach Suter continues to race at masters level events with his brother (John) and in father & child events with his daughter (Julie) and son (Sean).

Following the 2015 season, Coach Suter and his wife Chris relocated to Houston, Texas for work. Coach Suter continues to support the program from afar and likes to follow the progress of his athletes that continue to row in college. If you are ever in the Houston area, Coach and Mrs. Suter would love to have you out to the lake.
