Munsen named National Coach of the Year

Former Mitchell High boys and girls basketball coach Gary Munsen was named the national boys basketball Coach of the Year Wednesday night at the annual meeting of the National High School Athletic Coaches Association in Des Moines, Iowa.  The award was based on career accomplishments.  Munsen was one of eight regional finalists in the boys basketball category.  Munsen, who retired following the 2012 season, coached boys basketball for 42 years and compiled a record of 672 wins and 254 losses, which is the second most wins in South Dakota history.   Thirty-nine of those years were as head coach in Mitchell where he won nine state titles.  In April, Munsen was also inducted into the South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame.
