Head of Sioux Falls Sports Authority leaving for top job with Omaha Sports Commission


SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — Sioux Falls Sports Authority Executive Director Wes Hall is leaving to take the top job at the Omaha Sports Commission in Nebraska.

The Sioux Falls Sports Authority was formed in 2006 by community leaders to recruit major sporting events to the Sioux Falls area. Hall was hired in 2013, and Authority Board Chairman Kevin Lampe says he's been "instrumental in turning Sioux Falls into a true sports destination."

During Hall's tenure, the city secured eight NCAA Division II national championships among women's basketball, men's basketball, wrestling and outdoor track and field. This year, the Sports Authority will host an NCAA Division I women's basketball regional at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.

The Authority Board hopes to name Hall's successor by February.
