            In her freshmen year (93-94), Sarah won the 50 free and the 100 butterfly at the Class A State Meet.  Her 50 free swim (24.63) eclipsed the previous standard set 13 years earlier. For her achievements, she was named Swimmer of the State Meet as well as a Maine Sunday Telegram MVP and a Maine All State Team selection.

As a sophomore, her wins in the 50 free and the 100 butterfly in addition to membership on the Rams’ first place medley and free relays contributed to the Rams’ state title.   She was named to the Maine All State Team in four events, the 50 free, 100 butterfly and the 200 free and 200 medley relay.

State records in 1995-96 in the 100 butterfly (58.9) and the 50 free (24.42) highlighted

her junior year for the Rams, winners of the state title.  Her achievements earned her Class A Swimmer of the Meet recognition, Maine Sunday Telegram MVP and Maine All State Team honors.

In her final year of racing for the Rams, she continued her record swimming with another state mark in the 50 free and wins in the 100 fly and the 200 medley and 400 free relays as the Oldenburg and the Rams won their third consecutive title. Her free relay split included a then impressive time of 52.6.  Again, she was placed on the Maine All State Team in four events and she was named a Maine Sunday Telegram MVP and the MPA Swimmer of the Meet.

Sarah continued her swimming career at Tufts University. As a freshmen, she was named to the All New England Team in the 50 and 100 free, the 100 butterfly, and the 200, 400,  and 800 free relays and her performances at the time of her induction were among the fastest in the history of Jumbo swimming.
