“Passionate. Caring. Competitive.”
All words that have been used to describe fifth year forward Sarah Griffith.
The same Sarah Griffith who is on pace to have one of the greatest offensive seasons in Purdue soccer history.
Currently tied for the most goals in the Big Ten at 11, Griffith has led the Boilermakers (10-2-2, 5-1-0 Big Ten) to the No. 19 spot in the United Soccer Coaches Poll, their first top-25 ranking in over 12 years.
