Elston tabbed as next Eagle boys hoops coach

Pending approval by the Windom Area school board, it appears Windom's boys basketball coaching vacancy will be filled by a Windom native.

Chad Elston, a 1995 Windom Area High School graduate, has accepted the job as head boys basketball coach. He has also accepted a position teaching special education at Winfair Elementary School, also pending approval by the board.

Elston has spent the past six seasons as the head girls basketball coach at Mora High School. Prior to teaching in Mora, he taught in Hutchinson and at Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop.

While at Mora, Elston guided his team to the section finals, and he was named Section 7AA Coach of the Year.

Elston is slated to replace a high school teammate of his, Dane Nielsen, as the Eagles' head coach. Nielsen stepped down from his coaching position after being hired as Windom's new Activities Director.

While in Windom, Elston was brought up to the varsity team as a freshman, playing for Hall of Fame Coach Jack Kelly during Kelly's final season on the bench. Elston then played three seasons under Coach Ron Wendorff.

Elston noted that he was sad to leave Mora, but also excited at the opportunity to teach and coach in his hometown.

Much more on this story will appear in the sports section of the June 25 Citizen.
