Sarah is a Year 12 student who is dedicated to whatever she does. She is Head Student of Aylward House and has excelled in Volleyball, Netball, Gymsport and Athletics.
Sarah’s list of achievements across sport are a real credit to her and are a result of her diligent attitude and willingness to work hard to achieve success. She was National Gymsport Aerobics Champion in 2012 and specialises in High Jump at Athletics where she was third in the North Island in 2016 and was Bay of Plenty Champion five years in a row. Sarah is an excellent defender in Netball and was selected as a talented player in the National Secondary Schools Netball Program in 2017. She is also an accomplished Netball Umpire who received her Zone theory umpiring award last year. In 2016- 2017 Sarah was selected for the Interprovincial Volleyball representative team where they achieved third place at Nationals in Division 2 last year. Sarah has recently been selected in the New Zealand Youth Women’s team to compete in Thailand in May. Sarah and her partner achieved third place in the Senior Girls Division 2 New Zealand Secondary Schools Beach Volleyball Championships during January this year.
Sarah doesn’t have any particular goal for this year but is a strong believer that accolades and opportunities will present themselves as long as she continues to work hard!
Sarah’s favourite sporting experience was being named in the New Zealand Youth Team because she felt a huge sense of achievement and was pleased her hard work was being acknowledged.
Sarah’s favoured pre game meal is a smoothie and her favourite colour is purple. She really enjoys studying Chemistry and Biology and her favourite Bible verse is:
1 Peter 4:10 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
