2013 Phyllis L. Tubbs Service Award
Linda Horn, Brownsburg High School
In 1975-76 the ICGSA
Executive Board established this award to be given to honor an ICGSA member who
has served girls’ athletics for several years.
The recipient should have been or is an active member of ICGSA, and has
established longevity through several years of service to girls’ athletics and
the association. In 2002-03 the
Executive Board named this award the Phyllis L. Tubbs Service Award.
Our 2013 Service Award

swimming world even though she has retired from teaching and coaching. In
addition to coaching swimming, she was also a gymnastics coach, Aquatics
Coordinator, Special Olympics Swimming Coach, and an American Red Cross
Instructor and Trainer. She has been
honored by the IHSSCA, NHSSCA, and ICGSA with several Coach of the Year honors
throughout her career, and was honored by the National Swimming Coaches
Association with their Outstanding Service Award in 2003. If you attend either of the IHSAA boys or
girls state swimming meets, you will find that Linda still serves as the Clerk
of the Course and is the one responsible for organizing the Parade of Champions
for the meets. She serves on the Indiana
Swimming and Diving Hall of Fame Board of Directors as the Girls Swim Historian
and has been responsible for compiling the All Time Top Twenty for girls
swimming since 1974. She has served on
