Girls Basketball Notes: Sarah Martin Trains Horses, Turns Into Scoring

Martin enjoyed the barrel racing, a rodeo event where the horse and rider complete a cloverleaf pattern around preset barrels against the clock.

That shouldn’t come as a surprise since Martin loves competing on the court. She even spent time on New Year’s Eve working on her shooting at teammate Aubrey Toppen’s barn.
