Meet the Head Coach
Coach Sparky Ainslie is entering his second year as head coach of Bellarmine Wrestling. A graduate of Bellarmine in 2002, he had spent the previous 10 years being an assistant helping coach multiple state placers. Coach Ainslie went to Central Washington University for his undergraduate where he wrestled and received his teaching degree in history education. He also serves as a freshman football coach at Bellarmine.
The Lions Wrestling program philosophy is to develop not only great wrestlers, but great students and young men who demonstrate outstanding character. This program will measure its success not only in wins and losses, but also in our wrestlers’ abilities to be productive students, models of Christ, and successful contributing citizens after high school.
Coach Ainslie is a Social Studies teacher at St. Nicholas Catholic School and lives in north Tacoma.
