The Missouri Basketball Coaches Association recently announced that girls’ basketball head coach Monica Tritz and boys’ assistant Armeake Estes are among those being honored as coaches of the year, coach Tritz as Class 5 girls’ basketball coach of the year, and coach Estes as assistant coach of the year. The award recognizing the entire year truly fits in more than the few winter months of basketball season, encompassing the spring, summer, and fall months of workouts and shootarounds. This upcoming summer, like all prior, will be business as usual for Kirkwood Basketball, building and developing high caliber teams.
Athletic director Corey Nesslage sees the success of Kirkwood teams and their coaches up close throughout the entire season, and throughout the offseason months of preparation. “The commitment of our coaches throughout the year is phenomenal,” Nesslage said. “They have the best interest of their student athletes at the forefront of all their decisions. They [both] do a fantastic job.”
