Michael Schonhoff Head Coach mschonhoff@gmail.com

The 2016 season marks Coach Schonhoff’s inaugural season as Head Water Polo Coach at CBC. He is hopeful about the Cadets’ ability to improve and compete at a high level this year and looks forward to establishing a team philosophy that emphasizes press defense and conditioning.

Prior to coaching at CBC, Schonhoff coached both high school and club level water polo. He was the Assistant Varsity and Assistant JV coach at St. Louis University High School last year, where the Jr. Bills won the 2015 State Championship. He also spent a summer coaching with St. Louis Area Polo (SLAP), a local club team.

As a player at Saint Louis University, Schonhoff helped the Billiken water polo club team win its first-ever Missouri Valley Championship in 2011; they placed 13th at the National Collegiate Club Championship that same year. He was twice voted Missouri Valley Division Men’s Club MVP (2011, 2012) and was a Men’s Club All-American Honorable Mention in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Prior to SLU, Schonhoff attended De Smet Jesuit High School where he was captain of the 2010 State Championship team. He was voted Offensive Player of the Year and was a unanimous First-Team All-District selection.

In addition to coaching, Schonhoff also teaches Theology at Incarnate Word Academy, is happily engaged, and loves to go hiking around St. Louis.
