  • Red Oak Express Female Athlete of the Year: Carmen Subbert

    When Carmen Subbert was younger, she sat on the bleacher seats in the Stanton High School gymnasium, watching and looking up to the players, whether it was volleyball or basketball.

    She looked up to her older sisters, Christa and Kadie, the latter whom she played a season with on varsity in several sports during freshman year. She looked up to many players during that time.

    When her time came, it was Subbert who was in the spotlight; drawing admiration from young girls sitting in the same bleachers she did years ago.
