Sarah Hicks is from Outlook, Saskatchewan and is in her third year at Augustana and second year skiing for the Vikings (and ever). She is enrolled in a BA program, majoring in Outdoor Education in the Physical Education stream and one day hopes to narrow down her ideas of what she wants to pursue after university. As a returning skier, Hicks hopes to continue to improve her technique, train more competitively, and prove to Ben that baby tucking down hills is an effective race strategy.
She has been on the Dean’s List from 2017-2019, is the Augustana Nordic Sports Club president, sits on the Nordic Sports Advisory Committee, and is an executive for the Augustana Outdoors Club.
When Hicks is not on the trails, you can find her wrapped in a blanket on the floor of random places, eating cookies, and watching alpine climbing videos. Her favorite book is usually whatever the last thing she read was (as of 20.05.2019, The Four Loves by C.S.Lewis and Honouring High Places by Junko Tabei), her favorite movie is Monty Python and the Holy Grail and her favorite food is pulled pork.
One of her favorite inspirational quotes is: “Your biggest competition is yourself so go out there and have fun” -Coach Blake Lyons before every track and field meet
