Ben Voss new Crusader Athletic Director
Ben VossEdgewood High School of the Sacred Heart is happy to announce Ben Voss, EHS Class of 1995, as the new Athletic Director, effective July 1, 2022. Ben takes over for longtime EHS Athletic Director Chris Zwettler, who announced his retirement in the spring.

Ben will oversee Edgewood’s highly successful athletic program. Among his duties as Athletic Director, he will be developing curriculum, providing professional learning, submitting state and federal reports, and preparing and monitoring the program budgets. The Athletic Director is the school liaison to the WIAA.

Athletics are a big part of Edgewood’s goal to educate the whole student. Annually 75% of the Edgewood student body participates on one or more of EHS’s 21 sports teams for boys and girls. Since joining the WIAA in 1999, Edgewood teams have captured more than 100 Badger Conference Championships, and have been State Champion or Runner-up more than 50 times, in 15 different sports. Each year, many Edgewood athletes move on to compete at the college level.

"My family has a rich and proud history with Edgewood High School and I am honored to be coming back to serve in a leadership role,” said Ben. “I am excited about the new relationships I will form with staff, coaches, students, families, and the Crusader Nation. Edgewood is a special place and it's great to be home and be a part of the Crusader family again. I would like to thank (Principal) Mr. Jerry Zander and the interview committee for this opportunity."

Ben was a three-sport athlete in all four of his years at Edgewood participating in soccer (fall), basketball (winter), and baseball (spring). He has experience as a teacher, administrator and coach, most recently as Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Wisconsin Heights Middle and High School in Mazomanie. His experience as a teacher and coach includes James Madison Memorial High School in Madison and Waunakee Area School District. Ben was a member of the Wisconsin High School Boys and Girls Soccer Advisory Committee for two years.
