In the school’s history since opening its doors in 1961, only two people have served as activities director prior to Urdahl. SAVHS’ former assistant principal, Malley Smith, handled the athletic director duties briefly before Don Dennison became the district’s first A.D. When Mr. Dennison passed away in 1986, Gary Palm was chosen as his successor.

Urdahl received his Bachelor’s degree and earned collegiate letters in football, hockey, and baseball at Hamline University in St. Paul, later he obtained his Master’s degree in Athletic Administration from St. Thomas University and doctorate from Bethel University where he researched high school student-athletes’ participation experiences.  Dr. Urdahl is the Past-President of both the Minnesota State High School Coaches Association and the Minnesota State High School League’s Board of Directors.  Urdahl is an active member of the MSHSL Coaches Education Committee and Why We Play faculty.
