After graduating in 2018, Sara returned to play for two years as a graduate student, captaining during the 2019-2020 season. Though the season ended prematurely, Sara’s contributions to the team are hard to forget – her high ultimate IQ, paired with her confident leadership and her ability to throw anything she wants to, have allowed Gungho to play to its fullest potential.
