94 Devil, Sarah Chow, was the first Devil to attend an NCAA Division I school and has now become the first to receive her degree from an NCAA Division I school. After four years of college softball at Utah State University, Sarah is ready to move on to the next chapter of her life

She went down to Logan in the fall of 2012 as a right handed power hitting shortstop/pitcher but came back as an accomplished left handed slapping outfielder.  After a sore shoulder shut her pitching down in her Freshman year, she was used as a utility player for 27 starts (36 games) at SS, 3B, 1B and DH and was also transitioned into a left handed slapper.  The following year she continued to bat on the left side and was moved to the outfield full time where she became a mainstay her final three seasons.

Chow finishes her career with her name scattered throughout the Utah State record book.  She currently holds the school record for most triples in a game (3), most triples in a season (8) and tied for the most hits in a game (4 - which she accomplished three times) as well as unofficially owning the longest on base streak (25 games), longest hitting streak (19 games) and most assists in a game record (9).  The three triples in a game is also a Mountain West Conference record and tied for the NCAA Division I record.  Her 8 triples in her senior season topped the MWC and was in a five way tie for 2nd in the country.

She also leaves Utah State with her name on a number of career, season and game top ten lists including 4th in career batting average (.334), 2nd in career triples (12), 3rd in career runs scored (91), 7th in career stolen bases (26), 4th in season batting average (.413), 7th and 10th in single season hit totals (64 and 59), tied for 2nd in season runs scored (36) and 5th in season stolen bases (15).
