SALT LAKE CITY - The University of Utah is proud to announce the addition of another promising recruit to the Ute lineup this season. Sara Ravenberg will join the team this fall and will bring added support to the goalkeeper position. The newcomer was a well accomplished athlete at Hunter High School and has been an avid member on the club team Sparta United.
"Sara is an outstanding goalkeeper and person," Head Coach Rich Manning says. "She has a good understanding of the game and excellent hands. We are excited she's coming to the U. next year."
The 5'7" keeper helped the Sparta United club win the Utah State Cup Championships in both 2001 and 2002. While at Hunter, she accumulated second-team all-state and first-team all-region honors.
Ravenburg enjoys outdoor sports as well as gardening. Academically, the West Valley City native garnered high honor roll honors, while being a member of the National Honor Society.
