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 despite surviving a season in which his team won only one game.  Only Jeff Robertson had coached more seasons at SJCS with 9.

One of the most celebrated coaches in the state of Alabama, John Price, took over in 2016 and coached for 2 seasons.
