Kevin Suter with the support of his wife Chris started Stone Bridge High School Rowing.
He started coaching rowing while attending Marietta College where his freshman came in third at the Dad Vail Regatta. Suter was also the Head Coach for Briar Woods 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 four years for Marietta College boating the freshman eight and then the varsity light weight 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 the masters level events with his brother John and in father and child events with his daughter Julie and son Sean.
Coach Suter wants to continue to introduce the students of Stone Bridge High School to the sport that he loves. He believes that hard work and dedication can overcome talent and hopes to instill a strong work ethic in his athletes that will help them as they become young adults.
Unfortunately 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 continued to row in college. If you are ever in the Houston area I am sure Coach and Mrs. Suter would love to have you out to the lake.
