Sarah (Craft) Kill

A four-sport standout and the South High’s all-time leading scorer in girls’ basketball, Sarah (Craft) Kill ’99 was one of the greatest female athletes in school history.

A natural athlete, Sarah was a three-time Foothills Council and Section II MVP and two-time TV-13 All-Star in basketball, a three-time Foothills Council All-Star and Post-Star Player of the Year in softball, and a second-team All-Conference player in volleyball and field hockey.

A four-year starter in basketball, Sarah finished her career with 1,650 points, 505 rebounds, 314 assists and 374 steals. Selected as the top player in the Foothills Council in 1996-97, 1997-98 and 1998-99, she led the team in scoring, steals and assists all three years and was the also the top Bulldog rebounder in 1996-97.

She is one of only four girls’ basketball players to score more than 1,000 points. The others are Tina Valastro, Micah Truax (a 2015 Hall of Fame inductee) and Darcie Nichols.

A three-year starter in softball, Sarah was the team’s starting pitcher for three years before moving to center field as a senior. She was named first-team All-Conference all three years, and was the team’s leadoff batter and top base stealer.

As a sophomore, she played volleyball and was named second-team All-Conference. Then, as a senior, she decided to try field hockey, a sport dominated by her twin sister, Megan. Without ever having played the sport competitively, she was named second-team All-Conference.

Sarah went on to play basketball and softball at Mitchell Junior College in Connecticut, where she earned an associate’s degree in physical education and was a Junior College and Kodak All-American in basketball. She then attended Siena College on a full athletic scholarship and played basketball for two years for the Saints while earning her bachelor’s degree in psychology.

Sarah remains in the area, and lives in Moreau with her husband, Kevin, and three young children: Ava, 9; Sophia, 7, and Sebastian, 3. She has her own photography and LuLaRoe businesses, and coaches recreation softball and basketball teams.
