Mrs. Jennifer Bolli Holden
I am the Head Gymnastics Coach for Heath High School and Cain Middle School. I have lived in Rockwall for 26 years and I have been teaching and coaching in the district for 16 years. Many of my athletes still call me Coach Bolli, which is my maiden name and nickname since I started competing HS gymnastics! My husband, Joel, and I have a precious little girl, Josie, (8 yrs) and the sweetest little boy, Jericho, (5 yrs).
I started competed club gymnastics at the age of 7 and competed all the way through my senior year of college. By my junior year of high school I was a level 10 gymnast and competed varsity all 4 years at Rockwall HS. I received a gymnastics scholarship to compete for TWU in Denton, TX. Some highlights of my gymnastics career include my high school team winning 2 state championships, my college team winning 2 national championships, I placed 1st on floor and 2nd in the all-around at the Texas High School state meet my senior year, and placed 1st on balance beam at the high school senior national meet.
In my coaching career, the Lady Hawk gymnastics team has made it to state championships as a team 12 times, placed 3rd as a team at state in 2010, 4th as a team at state 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, 5th as a team at state in 2011 and 2019, 10th as a team at state 2021, 14 high school national senior qualifiers, 4 individual state champions, 45 individual state event placements, named Region 1 Coach of the Year in 2008 and 2017, named State Coach of the Year in 2010 and 2018, named national team Texas coach in 2010, and have had 3 gymnast score perfect 10.0's.
I have a passion for coaching gymnastics and am truly blessed to be able to do what I love everyday! I have had very inspirational coaches in my career as a gymnast that have positively impacted me and made me who I am today! I hope to have the same impact on my gymnast when they leave the gymnastics program!
