There’s certain momentum in Bulldog Country these days! Coach Franklin has the East Palestine Girls Basketball team hitting on all cylinders, and leading the way is one of the teams top rebounders and Senior, Sara Buskirk. “Buzz” as they affectionately refer to her has been in the program for 4 years and has seen the shift in the culture, and spirit over her tenure. This year, Sara has jumped at the opportunity of her role on the hardwood and serves as a pillar of the team’s success.
We had a chance to pick her brain after her career-best ballgame and ask her about what makes her tick, and what (and who) motivates her on and off the court. This week’s East Palestine Player Profile is with Sara Buskirk: DRIVING THE BUS.
