Sarah continues to give back to the Black Ice organization by participating in clinics, and/or attending team practices when she is back in town.
Maryland Black Ice Alumna, Sarah Calta, was introduced as a member of The Terrapin Club’s 30 Under 30 program for 2020. The 30 Under 30 program recognizes University of Maryland alumni under the age of 30 for their achievements, and impact on their profession.
"It was an honor to receive the 30 under 30 award from the Terrapin Club this year! It was cool to get recognized for my professional life. When I was going to college at the University of Maryland academics was important to me. At that time I knew I wanted to go to Chiropractic school, I took it seriously."
Sarah is currently working on her Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Life University in Georgia after graduating from the University of Maryland in 2017 with a Kinesiology degree.
"Without my playing experience with the Maryland Black Ice. I would have never had the opportunity to play Softball at the University of Maryland. Softball taught me a good work ethic, perseverance, and determination. All qualities that I will need when I open my own business. I am blessed for the experiences I have gotten because I know they will make me a better doctor to my patients."
