  • Sara Warren has the edge

    Intensity in competition is often sought by athletes and desired by coaches. Coaches sometimes say that athletes have a certain “edge” about them when competing. In other words, those with the “edge about them” have the intensity level expected by coaches, and often envied by their opponents.

    For Junior Lady Hawks Basketball player Sara Warren, “the edge” is just something that becomes natural for her, and is welcomed by her basketball coach.
