Personal: Sarah enjoys horticulture, heights, animals, conspiracy theory, night running, writing and malapropisms…Sarah lists the most influential people in her life as her parents, Lynn Haney and John Trowbridge; the first Olympian she ever watched, Nadia Comaneci; every coach she's had – both those who've encouraged her and those who've doubted her; and her teammates…Looking ahead, Sarah would like to coach an elite team in a developing country as well as coach at a major university in the United States…She would also like to combine the competitive drive and team dynamics of rowing in an entirely different field, giving her new experiences and challenges...Sarah would also like to say, GO BLUE!
