Entering her second season as a volunteer assistant for the Tigers, Gina proved an invaluable asset for the Tigers' staff in her first season as Pacific earned its first-ever Big West title. Coaching the outfielders, Gina helped the maturation of a young core of outfield talent while helping in the continued improvement of Pacific's left-handed slappers.
Prior to coming home to Pacific, Gina spent the previous three seasons on the University of Washington coach staff, Carbonatto joins the Tigers' coaching staff as a volunteer assistant for the 2011 season. Carbonatto returns to the Tiger dugout where she was a three-time all-american for Pacific, patrolling the centerfield from 2004-07.
Beginning as a volunteer assistant with the Huskies during the 2007-08 season after graduating from Pacific, Carbonatto became a full-time assistant in the fall of 2008 working under former Pacific assistant and current Husky head coach Heather Tarr. While on staff at Washington, Carbonatto helped guide Washington to its first ever national championship in the 2009 season as the Huskies defeated Florida in back-to-back games to take home the title and finish 51-12 overall.
Prior to beginning her coaching career, Carbonatto established herself as one of the finest softball players in the country throughout her four seasons at Pacific. The only Tiger in program history to ever earn three all-america awards, Carbonatto etched her name throughout Pacific's record books on her way to one of the greatest careers in Pacific softball history.
One of the top centerfielders in the nation for each of her four seasons, Carbonatto's senior season was no different as she led the Tigers in batting with a .400 average and a program record 78 hits. Putting herself in position to score, Gina racked up 58 runs during the season, tying the Big West single season record. She owns the program's all-time hit record with 280 career hits, a number that ranks her No. 2 all-time in conference history. She is both the Tigers' and the Big West's career leader in runs scored as she crossed home plate 178 times throughout her four seasons. Additionally, Gina ranks as the Tigers' all-time leader in career batting average as she became the first Pacific player to finish her career above .400 finishing at .401, shattering the previous record of .333. In the field, Carbonatto committed just one error in centerfield during her four seasons patrolling Bill Simoni Field.
