Mike Kroll, Manchester University's first head men's and women's swimming and diving coach, has seen his programs reach sterling heights in just three seasons at the helm.
He's guided the first Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Invitational and Ohio Athletic Conference Championships' women's diving champion (Ally Roskos) and was on the deck for the 2016 NCAA Division III Regional Diving Championships, as Roskos qualified to represent the Spartans. In the teams' first season as an affiliate member of the OAC (2015-16), the men's and women's squads combined for five top eight event finishes.
Kroll, previously an assistant coach and aquatics director at Ohio Wesleyan University since October of 2011, has been around the sport of swimming throughout his undergraduate, post-graduate and coaching careers. He's held titles as parks and recreation swim club director in Washington, D.C. (Jan. 2006-Aug. 2007); counselor at the California University of Pennsylvania, the University of Tennessee and the United States Military Academy at West Point swim camps (varying dates from June 2008 – July 2013); assistant coach at SUNY-Brockport (Aug. 2007-Sept. 2009) and head coach at Genesee Community College (Nov. 2009- Oct. 2011). He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from SUNY-Brockport in May 2006.
