30 Seconds On The Clock: Sarah Sachs, Women's Tennis

In our most recent 30 Seconds On The Clock, women's tennis captain Sarah Sachs gets a lot of high praise from her coach, shares her love for Shakira and lets you know what app she can't live without.

What They Are Saying About Sarah Sachs:
"In all my years of coaching I've not had the pleasure of working with a captain such as Sara Sachs. A natural leader, a caring thoughtful, funny and talented player in her own right, she is the embodiment of what every captain should model themselves from. No ask is too big or inconvenient for her, despite her course load. She is the first to offer assistance to any player on the team. She is often the first on the court and last off the court. A motivator through and through, I will be sorry to see her graduate this year."– Clark University women's tennis head coach Helaine Vrana
