Coaches Hall of Fame
Kenny Loosvelt grew up in Rushville, and as a high school wrestler was a member of program that was rich in tradition. Kenny wrestled in that program at the start of its run of excellence as a part of the ’91 & ’92 state Championship teams. He graduated from Wayne State College in 1998 and his first teaching and coaching assignment was at Madison High. The Madison wrestling program was two years old when Coach Loosvelt took over at the helm that had never had a state qualifier or scored more than 100 points at an invite. In Loosvelt’s first year with the program they reached a few milestones; not only did they win their first ever invite, they took two wrestlers to state and both wrestlers brought home medals. It was the beginnings of a new culture of success at Madison High School.
In his 13 years at Madison High Coach Loosvelt has won 81 duals, 42 regular season tournament championships, 8 mid-state conference championships, 9 district championships, 2 state runner-up and 3 state championship trophies. He has coached 91 state qualifiers, 60 state medalists, and 11 state champions. His teams have only finished one time outside the top ten in Class C and they have currently placed in the top three each of the past five seasons. The medals and the trophies are only part of the success Coach Loosvelt has brought to Madison. Kenny is a leader within his community; he has served on the golf board as well as his churches parish council and brings a noticeable spirit of teamwork to the people of Madison. In 2010 he was awarded the Citizen of the Year of Madison.
Kenny and his wife of eight years, Audrey have three children Josie 7, Brooks 6, Eliza 2 and baby number four is set to arrive in August. His father, Mark Loosvelt, will introduce him.
