Sarah Locke

Gymnastics/Tumbling/AAU Team

Hi I'm Sarah! I began gymnastics I was eight years old. She went to class to “try it out” and immediately fell in love with the sport. Sarah competed in the AAU levels 2, 3, Bronze and Silver qualifying for State and National championships. In high school I became an assistant coach for my gym. She also shifted her focus from gymnastics to the new and upcoming sport of Acrobatics and Tumbling. I was recruited to be a part of the inaugural Acrobatics and Tumbling team for Lander University in South Carolina.

I went on to compete as a base for four years with the Lander University Acrobatics and Tumbling team. As an NCAA Division II athlete, her team qualified for conference championships and won a few events at the conference event finals. 

I'm dual majoring at Lander University and will graduate from Lander University with a bachelor’s degree in Cybersecurity and Computer Information Systems in Spring of 2025.
