UW-River Falls head track and field coach Aaron Decker has resigned from his position due to his wife, Niki Moore, taking a position closer to family in Missouri. His resignation will be effective at the end of the 2013 outdoor season.
Decker is in his third year as head coach at UWRF. He has coached four women and eight men to NCAA All-American honors including this past indoor National Championships when Alyssa Rasmussen and Brittany Nord- land each earned All-American honors.
In his time here the UWRF women have set six indoor and seven outdoor school records and the men have set nine indoor and 10 outdoor school records.
This season the men’s team has only had one outdoor meet so far this. They finished in fourth place at the Phil Esten Challenge at UW-La Crosse on April 20-21. The women’s team finished fifth place at the same meet.
Decker will finish his season with meets including the St. Mary’s open this Saturday, April 27, and then the team will compete in the WIAC championships and some qualifying meets to try get some athletes to the outdoor nationals.
