A gold medalist in the 10,000 metres at the Ontario Summer Games in 1994, Sarah was the first woman to receive a cross country scholarship from Providence College, and her performance there earned her many accolades. She helped Providence to the NCAA Division One team championship in 1995 and was four-time All-American.

In 1999, Sarah was Providence’s Female Athlete of the Year and was named an Academic All-American upon graduation.

She was named to Canada’s national team and competed in the world cross country championships six times in a row between 1998 to 2003. Sarah also won medals at the Canadian Cross Country Championships three times including silver in 2000 and gold in 2001. Sarah also won gold at the 2002 Canadian 10K Road Running Championships. Competing for Canada she was fifth in the 5,000 metres at the 2001 Francophone games.

Sarah’s leadership was demonstrated by her being named team captain in her senior year at Providence and three years on Canada’s national cross country team.
