RCAS Gymnastics coach honored with prestigious award

Pam Junek

We’re very proud of SHS and CHS gymnastics Coach Pam Junek! She received the SD Gymnastics Coaches Association Hall of Fame Award at the State AA Gymnastics Meet in February. She truly leads by example and has coached and mentored hundreds of athletes at both of Rapid City’s comprehensive high schools.

Junek started coaching gymnastics at the YMCA in 1980. She was also the owner and operator of Rising Star Gymnastics for 12 years. She recently wrapped up her 13th season as head coach of the Rapid City Central and Stevens gymnastics teams. She also coaches sideline cheer at CHS.

During the past 13 years, the Central Cobblers have won two state gymnastics titles and two runner-up titles, and Stevens finished runner-up at state once.


Congrats Coach Junek!
