About Sarah
Hailing from Fort Collins High School in Colo., Walker started to gain recognition as an eighth grader competing at the high school level. Throughout her high school career, she collected a number of victories and accolades as she was a two-time All-American in the shot put and discus as well as All-State and All-Conference all four years of high school in both events. Her time at Fort Collins was highlighted with four state championships in both shot put and discus. She went undefeated during her senior season in each event. Walker continued her successful ways at Arizona State University where she would go on to earn a B.A. in kinesiology in 2008. Some of her hobbies include sports, shopping and scrap booking. She has two sisters, Heather and J’Nai, and her mother is Brenda.
