On each current Cowgirl locker is a placard that lists their jersey number, followed by the names of all former Cowgirls who have worn that number. Above is an example.

Sara lettered for the Cowgirls in 1980 and she still ranks fifth on the single-season steals list with 68.

What affect did playing basketball have on your life?
"I started playing basketball as a young girl. My dad was my first coach. When he taught skills, he always used common sense, everyday examples in our lives to get his point across. Through basketball, I have learned many valuable life lessons, a value system, and personal experiences that have shaped me into who I am today."

Favorite Wyoming memory:
"My favorite memory is that at each away game we played during my freshman year, there was always a family member at the game. My extended family is large and they live all over the United States."
