STEVENS POINT, Wis. -- After five seasons as the head women's cross country and track & field coach at Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Megan Woloszyn has stepped down, it was announced by director of athletics Daron Montgomery.
Megan and her new husband, Adam, will be moving to California where Adam has accepted a new position.
"Megan has been an asset to the UW-Stevens Point cross country and track & field programs -- both as a student-athlete and a coach," Montgomery said. "She always did what was in the best interest of her student-athletes. While we will really miss Megan, we are excited for her and her husband, Adam."
Woloszyn completed her fifth season as head coach of both the women's cross country and track & field teams in 2013-14. Under her leadership, 12 school records fell, 13 student-athletes earned All-American honors, 11 earned All-Academic honors and four of her teams earned All-Academic honors in both cross country and track & field.
"After five years of building the program at UW-Stevens Point, I will miss my Pointer family the most -- my team," Woloszyn said. "I am grateful for the opportunity to have contributed to UWSP and will cherish all the memories made. It has been a pleasure to coach here and I wish the program and department nothing but success."
