Brizard on Gawthrop: “We’re looking for Sarah to provide some experience on the flank and get in and score some goals. She’s our prime corner kick taker. She’s a very good server of the ball and she has a ton of speed. She can use both feet too, which is a rarity these days.”

In 2011 (Junior): Sarah started 16 contests and played in all 19 games, averaging 56 minutes of action per match. She scored two goals and assisted on another score, finishing the year with five ponts. Sarah took 26 shots, 15 of which were on goal for a shot-on-goal percentage of .577. Her first goal of the season came against Belmont on Aug. 21 when she bent a corner kick into the net. Her second goal came on a rebound in the box against East Tennessee State on Aug. 26, giving Tech a 1-0 lead in what eventually became a 2-1 victory. She was named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll.

In 2010 (Sophomore): Sarah started in 16 of 17 matches in her sophomore season
and scored two goals on the year. Her first goal of the season came in the early part
of the second half and gave Tech a 1-0 lead over UNC Asheville on Sept. 5, setting the
tone for a 3-1 win. Sarah scored her second goal of the year on a penalty kick when she
was taken down in the box against Eastern Illinois on Oct. 17. The goal was Tech’s only
one of the day as they fought to a 1-1 tie. Cheetah, the nickname her teammates have
given her, is most known for her speed.

In 2009 (Freshman): Sarah was the only Golden Eagle to start all 22 games in 2009. She finished second on the team in minutes played with 1820. She logged 100 minutes or more in six different contests.

HIGH SCHOOL: Sarah played soccer at Baylor School in Chattanooga, and was team captain in high school. Playing the forward and mid-field positions, she led her team to the state finals in 2005 and 2007, and the state semi-finals in 2006. In 2007 Sarah was named all-region first team and “Best of the Preps” second team. Sarah also competed in track and was the 2008 400-Meter and 4-by-1 relay state champion.

CLUB/ODP EXPERIENCE: Sarah played club soccer for East Ridge Express ’91 and for the Tennessee ODP state team for two years.

PERSONAL: The daughter of Phil and Brenda Gawthrop…born April 29, 1991…full name is Sarah Ann Gawthrop…majoring in pre-physical therapy.
