In his 12 seasons with the Panthers, head men's and women's track and field and cross country coach Pete Corfeld has become one of the winningest coaches in UWM history.
Corfeld, the longest tenured coach currently at UWM, has built well respected track and field and cross country programs that compete with some of the top schools in the nation. Including winning the 2000-01 MCC Indoor Championship, Corfeld has lead his teams to 13 conference championships and two runner-up finishes. Six athletes have been NCAA qualifiers.
This year, Corfeld earned MCC Track Coach of the Year for the men's and women's indoor seasons. During his 12 years at Milwaukee, he has won 12 Coach of the Year awards combined for cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field.
Corfeld is a UWM alumnus, graduating in 1986 with a bachelor's degree in science. While completing his graduate work at the University of Northern Colorado in 1987-89, he became the assistant men's and women's track and field coach, where he coached sprints, hurdles, and relays. Prior to coaching at Northern Colorado, Corfeld was the head men's and women's cross country and track and field coach at Milwaukee Area Technical College from 1983-86.
In 1989, he was reunited with the Panthers, taking the head cross crountry and track and field coach's position. From that point on, Corfeld has led the UWM cross country and track and field programs to national status. Corfeld looks to continue his winning ways throughout the 2001 outdoor track season.
