Entering her first season as an assistant coach with the Tulane swimming and diving program is former All-Mountain West Conference performer Sarah Woodbury.
Woodbury's position at Tulane marks her fourth stint as a collegiate coach and comes to the Green Wave from Marshall, where she spent the 2012-13 season. She previously served as an assistant at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J., from 2011-12 and as an assistant and interim head coach at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas in 2010-11. With Marshall last season, Woodbury was instrumental in helping set or tie four school records as the team won five dual-meet competitions.
During her time at Stevens Institute where she assisted with both the men's and women's programs, Woodbury directed a middle distance group of 18 student-athletes and each posted personal-best times that season. Along the way, the women's team finished fifth at the 2012 Division III NCAA Championship while the men posted an 11th-place showing. A total of nine student-athletes claimed All-America honors, eight earned honorable-mention All-America distinction and Brittany Geyer won the national title in the 200 breast with a mark of 2:15.55.
Her collegiate coaching resume began at Southwestern University in July 2010 when she helped the Pirates establish nine school records, two national qualifiers, and the first All-American in school history. In addition to her college stops, Woodbury also served as head coach for the Huntington (W.Va.) Y Charleston Aquatic Team in 2012-13, head coach at Anderson Mill Swim Club from 2008-11 and youth coach for the North Shore Swim Club in Auckland, New Zealand from May through December 2008.
Following a stellar prep career at Westwood High and with the Circle C Swim Club where she earned NISCA All-America honors, Woodbury earned an athletic scholarship to BYU and was a four-year letterwinner from 2003-07. As a college student-athlete, she helped the Cougars claim four consecutive MWC titles, claimed the Scholar Athlete Award each year and earned All-MWC recognition three times. Following her time in Provo, Utah, Woodbury trained with the New Zealand National Team in 2008.
A native of Austin, Texas, she completed her degree in advertising and marketing from BYU in 2007 and earned a master's in physical education from Texas State in 2010.
