Gabrielle Marshall and Aidan Corn, student athletes at Pasco-Hernando State College, have been recognized for their overall contributions on and off the field.
Marshall, PHSC women’s cross-country runner, was awarded the Larry Monts Award June 21. The award is given to those who have excelled in academics, athletics and altruism through a selection process by cross-country coaches throughout the state.
"Gabrielle has not only exhibited outstanding leadership and dedication to the cross-country team but has excelled in the classroom. She is truly deserving for all her achievements as a student-athlete at Pasco-Hernando State College the last three years,” said Steve Winterling, Director of Athletics, Pasco-Hernando State College.
Gabrielle earned her AA degree from Pasco-Hernando State College in Fall 2021 and a Technical Certificate in Practical Nursing in Summer 2022 while leading PHSC to consecutive Florida College System Activities Association Athletics Championships under the guidance of FCSAA Region 8 coach of the year Jacki Wachtel. While enrolled Marshall worked at Moffitt Cancer Center and served as a special need's ministry and youth volunteer and worship leader in her local church.
Corn, PHSC freshman outfielder, was selected to the 2023 NJCAA Division II All-American baseball team. The All-American team is comprised of the greatest players from across the nation. Corn’s season stats include 49 runs, 86 hits, 54 runs batted in and 7 home-runs, out of 204 at bats with a .422 average.
“Aiden put together one of the best offensive seasons in Pasco Hernando State College history and was a leader on and off the field,” said Lyndon Coleman, PHSC head baseball coach.
More than 100 schools compete at PHSC's level and only around 50 players get the honor of being selected as an All-American.
