Sabrina Demerath isn’t your everyday business major at Utah State University. The Seattle Washington native happens to be a talented collegiate tennis player for the Aggie women’s team. The women have started out with an impressive 5-2 record and look to make noise when they face rivals such as BYU, Utah and Boise State.
When asked about her biggest rivals, Sabrina said, “We have been working really hard to beat them and show them this year that we are the best Utah team and the best Mountain West Conference team.”
Sabrina’s greatest role model has been her older sister who also played collegiate tennis. Sabrina has plenty of good feelings to express about her sister, stating, “I know all she wants is the best for me and that means she’s willing to push me but she’s also willing to support me.”
Sabrina has had a lot of success on and off the tennis court yet she couldn’t decide on what her best performance was. She did however proclaim that she has been playing the best tennis of her life throughout her college career. She remains confident that this will be her best year yet.

Sabrina will implement the computer skills in her Management Information Systems to help her future employer make good decisions. She will however use the tactics in her other major (Marketing) to influence the decisions of her customers. Tennis has been more so like the Marketing major as she has influenced her opponents to make decisions to her advantage. Her careful strategies led her to an 18-17 overall record in singles play in her sophomore year.
When she’s not busy serving on the tennis court, she uses her Internet service to stream her current Netflix shows (after her homework is done of course). She is currently watching American Horror Story, House, and New Girl.
Inside her there burns a competitive desire to do well in all aspects of her life. This has motivated her to do just as well in the classroom as she does on the tennis court. This attitude helped her garner Academic All-Mountain West honors in both her freshman and sophomore years. This is especially impressive considering how demanding the life of a student athlete is.
For the rest of her college career Sabrina Demerath will look to be a team leader for the promising Utah State University women’s tennis team and cheer on the men’s team who recently beat a Top 12 team in the nation.
For all those aspiring female athletes out there, she encourages them to never be satisfied with where they are at.
“Your potential is endless and limitless if you believe in yourself.”
