Plant's Carson Gibbs named Rose Diaz Award recipient



Plant setter Carson Gibbs is the 2015 recipient of the Rose Diaz award, Panthers coach Margeaux Sinibaldi said Thursday, a distinction given annually by the Hillsborough County Volleyball Officials Association to a player who exemplifies sportsmanship and leadership.

Gibbs, a junior, led the Panthers with 723 assists, nearly eight per set. She helped take Plant (27-7) to the 7A state championship match, where it fell to St. Thomas Aquinas 3-0.

"Carson winning this award is no surprise," Sinibaldi said. "This postseason, she decided she was going to take this team where it wanted to go, basically, and our success had a lot to do with her."
