Brooke Sibert has resigned as Calvary Christian girls basketball coach



Brooke Sibert has stepped down as girls basketball coach at Calvary Christian after seven seasons. Sibert has a career record of 127-51 and led the Warriors to their first ever state tournament in 2013. Overall, Calvary Christian won four straight district titles from 2013-16 and made two state semifinals under Sibert.

This past season, the Warriors were 11-11. Sibert coached only half the season after giving birth to her second child in January.

“I love coaching but for me it’s all about my two kids,’’ Sibert said. “My little ones need me. It’s something I knew I would do. I kind of told the girls in December that this would happen. I didn’t want to make it about me. I wanted them to continue on and keep getting better.’’

Sibert was a teacher at Skycrest Elementary in Clearwater but stopped teaching when her first child was born nearly two years ago. She is married to Caleb Sibert, who is also a teacher at Calvary Christian and the head volleyball coach. Caleb Sibert will continue coaching and teaching at the school.

“What I’m going to miss most is not necessarily the district championships but the relationships with the girls,’’ Sibert said. “Watching them grow over the four years. The bus rides. The pregame meals. Those are probably the things I will miss most.’’

Calvary Christian athletic director Todd Yoder said the school will open its search for a replacement soon.
