“Sarah is going into her senior year very excited about putting all the things she has learned together. Having a real good handle on her mental game will give her the tools she needs to bring home some big numbers this season. As hard as she has worked her first three years it is time for that to start paying off for her. I look for her to set many personal bests this season with the way she has been working.” – Head coach Harry Mullins

“Sarah has put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears the last three years. Coming into her senior year she has displayed a great attitude and it has had a positive effect on her performance in training thus far.
