Sioux Point Road, Dakota Dunes, SD. Weekend Masses: Saturday, 4:30 p.m.; Sunday, 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Meet Skye Bork By David Lias david.lias@plaintalk.net Saying that Skye Bork was destined to one day coach gymnastics is not an understatement. Consider this – her mom coached the sport. It was a task made all the easier because Skye’s family owned their own gym. “We actually owned our own gym in Kadoka, so gymnastics has been part of my life since I was born,” Skye said, shortly before beginning an afternoon practice session at VHS. Skye had served as assistant gymnastics coach for head coach Mark Upward for three years, and volunteer-coached for a year while serving as a gymnastics meet judge. She stepped into the role of head Tanager gymnastics coach this year following Mark’s decision last spring to retire from coaching. “I literally grew up in the gym because I’m the youngest of four. Both of my sisters competed in both club and high school, and my brother was very good in gymnastics, but we didn’t have any boy’s sport for it,” Skye said. “I started competing when I was 7. “My mom coached me my whole life. My sisters had other coaches before my mom, because they lived in different towns before,” she said. “But when they settled in Kadoka, they opened the gym, and the rest is history.” One advantage that Skye has over other head coaches still fresh on the job is a familiarity with many of her gymnasts as she’s gotten to know them well over the years. “Being head coach is significantly different. There’s a lot more responsibility that goes into it, obviously. There are some things that we’ve changed and some things that we’ve kept the same,” she said. She has continued to hold practices on a schedule so that not every Tanager gymnast comes to practice every day. “That’s something that Mark had started, and it makes things a little easier for the varsity girls – they get a little bit more one- on-one time,” Skye said. “We’ve added a meet – we went to the Madison Invitational. That was a really important add for us, because we saw a lot of judges that we’re going to be seeing at the Region meet, and we hadn’t gone to that meet before. That was an experience for all of us.” Seeing her athletes succeed is the most rewarding part of the job, she said. “The looks on their faces, the feelings that they get when they get a new skill or when they do really good at a meet – it’s such a great feeling for me to get to watch that, and to watch them grow,” Skye said. “Some of these girls I’ve been with since they were in seventh grade, and they are just getting older, and it’s just nice to see them grow up into the person they become both in the gym and outside the gym. It’s just remarkable.” Her athletes may gain in strength and coordination inside the gym while mastering the sport, but Skye said she’s learned that gymnastics teaches its participants skills that are valuable outside the gymnasium, as well. “It teaches you a lot of determination, a lot of dedication, and BRULE Creek Lutheran Church, Elk Point, SD: Worship Service 11:00am, Sunday School 9:45am to 10:45am.

Skye is the economic development and communications assistant at the Vermillion Chamber of Commerce and Development Company. “I go to work early, and leave a little early so I can make it here (the gym) on time,” she said.
