Glenville, W.Va. - Glenville State College head women’s basketball coach Charles Marshall would like to welcome Kayla Tibbs to the Lady Pioneer Family, as she signed her National Letter of Intent to play basketball next year at GSC. Kayla comes to us from Heritage High School in Leesburg, VA. She is the daughter of Carla Gray and Jay Gray, and she is the sister of Darius Tibbs and Morgan Gray.
Kayla has experienced a lot of success on the basketball court in her four years as a starter at Hertiage High School. As a freshman she was a major contributor for the Pride while she earned 1st team All District and 2nd team All Region honors. As a sophomore she was a member of the All District 2nd team. In her junior season she stepped into a leadership role for her team and did so with great results as she was named to the All District 1st team, All Region 1st team, All Metro Honorable Mention and District Player of the Year. She continued her great play in her final season for Heritage when she was again selected for the All District 1st team, All Region 1st team, All Metro Honorable Mention and District Player of the Year.
To go along with her great success on the court she is also an excellent student. She has been able to keep her GPA at a high level to stay on the A & B Honor Roll through out her four years in high school. She has also been selected for the National Honor Society.
It is easy to see why Coach Marshall is excited about the addition of Kayla. When asked about Kayla, Coach Marshall said “ We are excited to add Kayla to the GSC Family. Not just as an athlete but also a student. Kayla has the ability to make a major contribution on the court from the moment she steps on campus.”
When Kayla was asked what she was most excited about for the upcoming year she answered “ I’m most excited about the grind, to get better as a person and a ball player. I’m excited to exceed.”
