Morphew named head gymnastics coach

Mark Morphew has been named head gymnastics coach at New Prague High School, pending board approval.
Morphew is currently the co-director and a team coach at the New Prague Gymnastics Center. For the past four years, he has also been an assistant coach for the high school team.
He received the Minnesota State Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year Award in 2017 for his work with the program, and is also the current president of the Midwest Amateur Gymnastics Association, the biggest feeder program for high school gymnastics in the country, with more than 1,400 athletes and 60 clubs.
Morphew began his coaching career in Worthington before moving to Mankato in 2007 and coaching at Mankato West for eight years. At Mankato West, he spent time as both an assistant and head coach. Mark just completed his 14th season coaching high school gymnastics. He and his girlfriend, Katie Bohn, along with their dog, Kip, moved to their first home in Montgomery in 2018.
Morphew takes over for Doug Amundsen, who had been head coach since the death of Coach Matt Shetka in December, 2012. Amundsen led the team to the state championship later that winter and has had numerous individual entrants. Amundsen plans to stay with the program as an assistant coach.
