Sarah Boothe was best known for her height and solid low post skills entering Warren High. Two high school seasons and two off-seasons playing with the Full Package club team and Boothe now has a wide variety of scholarship offers. A legitimate 6'5 will good body structure and balanced physique, Boothe has become more evasive offensively with a high percentage hook turning on either pivot. She scores at a high percentage when she gets the ball within eight feet of the basket and forces defenses to deny her the ball. Passing out of the blocks is also a strong point, and her open court pace, while not overly speedy, will not hold up a team's offensive break opportunities. Summer basketball, with multiple games on the same day, shows her percentage decreases with heavy minutes over multiple games, but you rarely see her show fatigue. Areas of improvement include consistency at the freethrow line, defensive footwork, developing dominance on the offensive boards and improvement in shot consistency beyond 15 feet.
As a sophmore, Boothe has 817 career points. She averages 17 points and nine rebounds with eight double-doubles, shooting 60-percent from the floor. Warren lost in the supersectional to Buffalo Grove 51-48. Boothe led Warren with 16 points and 12 rebounds.
As a freshman, Sarah averaged 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds, shooting 61-percent from the floor and just over 50-percent from the freethrow line.
Warren head coach John Stanczykiewicz..."She's better at everything. She's a better passer, a better shooter,
she has better offensive moves and she has a better understanding of how to play the game. Plus, her
leadership qualities are really starting to come out." (November 11, 2006)
