In 1991, Sara rummaged through her mom's closet to discover a baton stored in the back. A month later, Mom signed up Sara and her sister for twirling lessons. Fast forward 25 years, and Sara's accolades include state, regional, and national titles, the position of the first Feature Twirler (1999-2003) for O'Connor High School in Helotes, Texas, a position on the prestigious University of Arizona Twirling Line from 2003-2007, and finally, the position of Team Captain in 2006. In 2010, after obtaining her National Baton Twirling Association (NBTA) judging license, she began coaching and judging at the local, state, regional, and national level. Sara has directed and assisted many contests including the 2008 and 2009 Arizona State Twirling Competition. Sara is an advocate for the sport of baton twirling, and she works to promote it locally and nationally.
