Curls out of: Four Seasons Curling Club, Philadelphia Curling Club 

Curling start: Curling is a huge part of my life. I have a lot of fun competing in non-competitive weekend 'spiels for the social aspect of the curling, but I really like playing against good competition better. Playing well in competitive curling gives me a sense of accomplishment for all the practice I have done. My dad and older sisters all curl so I grew up being at the club quite often. I played in Little Rockers until I was 10. I moved into juniors when I was 11. That is when I first played down in the GNCC. The next year my team and I qualified for Jr. Nationals. Since then, I have been working to go back and have competed in Women's Club Nationals and attended the U-18 International Championship in Canada twice, which gave me a taste of international competition. 

Other sports: Some other sports I play are soccer, basketball, softball and tennis. Curling is without a doubt my favorite. 

Career highlight: Qualifying for the Youth Olympics 

Favorite bands/music: LMFAO, Lupe Fiasco, Kid Cudi, Taylor Swift 

Most influential person in curling development: I would have to say my dad 

Earliest curling memory: My earliest curling memory is my dad pulling me down the ice while I sat on the end of the broom and we would race. 

Curling family: Sarah's father and four sisters curls 

Most memorable curling moment: Winning the final two games of the trials for the Youth Olympics 

Favorite color(s): Light green and dark purple
