Jerry Penney first made his name as a gymnast at Washington State University.  The move called the, “Penney German,” was named after him.  Following his career as a gymnast he became an assistant coach at WSU for Bob Peavy in 1969-70.
Following his time at WSU, Penney became a teacher and coach at Sammamish High School.  He has been the boys and girls high school gymnastics coach at Sammamish High School for over 30 years.  During his time as coach he has been named the High School coach of the year three times by the Gymnastics Coaches Association, and once the High School Regional Coach of the Year. In addition to Penney’s coaching career, he has been the gymnastics district meet manager for the past 30 years.  Penney was the WIAA State Gymnastics Meet manager for 19 years and has served as floor manager for the past 16 years.  Dean Ratliff, WIAA state tournament officials coordinator, states, “I can think of few people that have shown the dedication of Mr. Penney to both his current athletes, former athletes, to his program and to the sport of gymnastics.”  In 2001 Jerry was inducted into the Washington State Gymnastics Coaches Association Hall of Fame.  He was recognized as the Coach of the Year in 2010 for the KingCo League.
