Longtime York County track coach and athletic support Bob Jenkins has died.

Jenkins, 79, passed away this weekend nearly four years after retiring for the second time in 2009. Jenkins coached track at Northwestern High School for nearly three decades and later led the track program at the then-new South Pointe High School.

In a statement Monday from the South Carolina Athetic Coaches Association, “Our condolences are expressed to the family of Coach Robert Jenkins from Rock Hill.  Coach Jenkins was a member of the SCACA Hall of Fame and a past-president of our organization.”

Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
