Nancy Wenzel-Sanregret is in her sixth year as an assistant coach at Rice. She joined the Owls' track and field staff in 2002 after spending a year as an assistant coach for the Michigan State Spartans. Prior to her tenure in East Lansing, Mich., she was an assistant with the Washington State Cougars.
Wenzel-Sanregret's main responsibility lies with the Rice throwers. A 1996 graduate of Central Connecticut State University, Wenzel-Sanregret was a 1996 Olympic Trials qualifier in the hammer throw and a TAC national qualifier in the hammer throw in 1995. Her expertise has paid off for the Owls as Wenzel-Sanregret's throwers helped Rice secure the 2003 and 2004 Western Athletic Conference outdoor track and field crowns. In 2005, she guided Krystal Robinson to a fourth-place finish in the discus at the NCAA championships, earning the first-ever Rice all-America honor in that event. Robinson also set a school record to win the WAC title, moving up from her second-place finish in 2004.
Robinson also took silver in the discus at the 2003 WAC outdoor championships to help Rice to another team title. The 2003 season also saw Teresa Crismon set a school record in the hammer throw, a heave of 159-9.
At Michigan State, Wenzel-Sanregret's coaching focus was on the throws and pole vault, while also serving as the strength and conditioning coach for the entire women's track and field team. Additionally, she was heavily involved with recruiting and was in charge of equipment procurement and travel for the Spartans.
As an assistant coach at WSU, Wenzel-Sanregret worked primarily with the sprinters while assisting with the throwers, and provided strength and conditioning support for the women' track team.
Wenzel-Sanregret worked as a graduate assistant coach at Western Illinois from 1996-98, and served as the executive assistant for the Western Illinois Sports Management Council. In addition, she spent a year as an intern/assistant compliance officer at WIU.
Since coming to Houston, Wenzel-Sanregret has worked at the track and field summer camps at the St. John's School under the direction of Richie Mercado.
In addition to working with the Owls throwers, Wenzel-Sanregret is also in charge of purchasing team equipment, making travel arrangements and performing administrative duties. She also serves as the meet coordinator for the annual Rice Bayou Classic. After graduating from CCSU in 1996, the Hebron, Conn., native earned a master of science degree in sports administration from WIU in 1998. She and her husband, Michael Sanregret, reside in Houston.
