“I would like to thank Chris Kelly, my first soccer coach for introducing me to the game. I would also like to thank all my teammates and coaches over the years for pushing me to be the best I can be, and lastly, I would like to thank my parents for driving me to games and tournaments and always supporting me in any sport I decided to do.”


Coach Suzette Wolf says:  “Sarah is the best team player you could ever want. She supports every player on her team, and she is a silent leader. She’s vocal on the field when she moves the ball and she needs people in the right place, but she’s not a cheerleader. She’s silently leads, and everyone who plays with her admires her and respects her. When she has the ball and takes it up the field, she has such great skill that her team members make runs for her and move off the ball for her because they know that she’s going to hold the ball and be able to lay it off to them and something good will happen. She’s that kind of player. Of all the players I’ve ever coached, she’s got the heart of a true athlete, player and Spartan.”
