Also, she said she joining the Bismarck-Mandan Tennis Association which help let the community know that she was coaching and encourage more girls to come out for the sport, but here’s what she said was one of her biggest adjustments.

“The weather,” Gibbens said. “Having to cancel matches because of the weather. Having to try and figure out how you are going to fit 30 girls inside of the school gym or one court indoors that’s already happened.”
