Zoe was in the news again!  This time, “The Ledger,” a Polk County Florida newspaper, featured her in an article about her return to Volleyball.  Zoe lost her leg in 2011 after a jet-ski accident.  Since then she has overcome many obstacles, including several surgeries and infections.  Now Zoe is focusing on the future, and doing all the things a normal 16-year-old girl does – like driving on car!   🙂   click here to view “The Ledger,” article dated 10/8/2012 —>Zoe Gibbs return to Volleyball
