Roznowski, Voltz named as new track coaches


ALPENA – Alpena High School announced the hiring of new girls and boys varsity track coaches on Tuesday, naming Trevor Roznowski as Alpena’s girls track coach and Rick Voltz as Alpena’s boys track coach.

Roznowski succeeds Joy Bullis in his role and steps into it after three years as an assistant coach. Roznowski, a 2021 Ferris State University graduate, competed in throwing events at both the high school and collegiate levels.

He qualified for the state finals in the discus as a senior and has served as a mentor to Wildcat throwers.

Voltz succeeds Collin Riffert as boys track coach and comes to Alpena High with several years of experience coaching track at Thunder Bay Junior High School.

I feel very fortunate to work with someone as knowledgeable as Rick Voltz. He’s always been a pillar of our community and I’m looking forward to learning from him,” Roznowski said.


Voltz has more than 20 years of physical education experience at Alpena Public Schools and stood out for his commitment to focusing on teamwork, sportsmanship, character building, and individual growth.

“We had some really great candidates and two great people stood out from the rest. I am pleased to announce Rick Voltz and Trevor Roznowski as the new leaders of our track program,” Alpena Athletic Director John Studley said. “Both Rick and Trevor bring a love for student athlete success to this position and they have a lot of experience. Rick has over 20 years of coaching experience and Trevor was a student athlete at Ferris State as a throws member.”
