Campus Champion

Sarah Nadrowski ’13 earned the champion distinction in the most literal sense as a gymnast, which is why she’ll be honored with a ceremony during halftime of the 8 p.m. men’s basketball game Tuesday. The 12-time All-American, now a high school physical education teacher, will receive a national championship ring commemorating the National Collegiate Gymnastics Association titles she captured in all-around and vault competitions last year. In addition to pursuing a master’s degree in health education at the College, the Buffalo native serves as an assistant coach for the team she propelled to a third place finish nationally in 2013.
