Program History

Coach Ron Engelken was the first boys basketball coach at SJCS.  His early Lions teams were very competitive in the Missouri Christian School Conference.  During the 1990-91 season the Lions went 17-7.  Since joining MSHSAA in 1994, St. Joseph Christian has had two notable runs of success.  Under Head Coach and Superintendent Rich Fox, the 2000-01 Lions were district and regional champions.  The injury plagued Lions came 4 points shy of advancing to the quarterfinals that year.

Scott Jenkins was the 6th head coach to lead the Lions; he took over in 2006.  The unsuspecting Coach Jenkins was in for quite the roller coaster.  District runners-up in 2006-07, the Lions won a combined 30 games in Jenkins’ first two seasons.  From 2008 to 2010 SJCS won a grand total of five games.  From 2010 to 2012 St. Joseph Christian won 40 games, 2 district championships, and even made a trip to Columbia for the first “final four” appearance in school history.  Scott Jenkins retired as the SJCS boys head basketball coach in 2013 after 7 years at the helm with a career record of 90-73.  Only Jeff Robertson had coached more seasons at SJCS with 9.
