Sports: Swimming, Softball and Bowling

With tens of thousands of high school seniors across the country fighting for only a few thousand scholarships, it becomes more and more critical for the student-athlete to separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Not necessarily in terms of a level of talent, but perhaps separating themselves by trying something a little different than everyone else. Our next Athlete of the Week is one of those people. Sarah Bamburg is a senior at Columbia High School and could quite possibly be the most diverse athlete in the history of Eagles athletics. You can find her on the softball field, in the water for the swim team and at the top of the bowling lane perfecting her form for the bowling team. As a second-team All-City softball player, Sarah plays a major role in the success of the varsity softball squad. She’s also a member and team captain of the varsity swim team, where she is a sectional qualifier and junior coach to a local summer swim team. Where most of us see bowling as something you do with friends on a Saturday night, Sarah sees it as another sport for her to succeed with. She was named team captain for Columbia bowling and was considered by her coach to be the anchor scorer on her team. Sarah can also anchor down with her classwork, as it reflects in her stout 4.19 GPA. She has found her name on the Columbia High School honor roll her entire high school career and is currently a member of the National Honors Society. Sarah has worked hard as a member of the International Baccalaureate Program for the past four years and was part of the Hudson/Alpha Bio-Tech Academy. She has been a community giver, ever since she joined the Girl Scouts of America. There, she was awarded the highest honor bestowed to a Girl Scout Cadette, the Silver Award. Sarah had to put forth substantial hours towards developing and implementing a service project that is sustainable and educational. She is also Editor-In-Chief for the school yearbook and an ambassador for the Columbia High School Magnet Program. Congratulations, Sarah!
