Sarah Ogle pitched and played 2B while maintaining a 3.6 GPA at Carleton College (Northfield, Minnesota), ranked fifth in the country among liberal arts colleges. As one of the team captains her senior year, Sarah helped lead the Knights to their best season of all time, breaking the Carleton single-season win record. In her junior year, she earned the start in Carleton’s first ever earned playoff game against St. Catherine’s. Sarah was not only an important part of the Knights pitching staff but also a resilient and stellar teammate as she rebounded from season-ending injuries as an underclassman and was voted onto the All-MIAC Sportsmanship Team by her teammates in both 2016 and 2018. She was named an Easton/NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete all four years and earned a spot on the Academic All-Conference Team in 2018.
Sarah was trained in San Diego by some of San Diego’s best pitching coaches: Bill Corbett and Stayce Preator. As a four-year varsity starter in high school, she played mainly 2B as an underclassman and pitched as an upperclassman. In 2014 and 2015, she was named First Team All-Coastal League and was in the top five in San Diego for strikeouts. She played travel softball for Power Surge and Renegades in which one of her favorite memories was winning the 16U Colorado Sparkler tournament.
She is excited to coach softball in San Diego and especially at Robb field, where she started playing softball at the age of five at Peninsula Youth Softball. Sarah was a 6-time All-star and was picked up by powerhouse Bonita Valley to help them finish 4th in ASA 12U Nationals. Sarah’s stellar pitching helped 12U and 14U Peninsula teams to District Championships, State berths, and ASA Nationals. This 5’3” pitcher got the most out of her potential through hard work, attention to detail, and a commitment to excellence where she left it all on the field each and every day. In her very last college game she pitched a shutout and got the game-winning RBI.
Sarah graduated from Carleton College in June 2019 with a Geology degree and plans to take a year off from academics before starting a Ph.D. program in Climate Science at the University of California, San Diego. Sarah looks forward to giving back to the game and continuing to coach young athletes while in graduate school.
