This is all just good good to be true. Sarahcuda clinches the 1982 Alaska High School Women's Championship with a free throw at the end. And get this.
Hollywood couldn't have written a more dramatic script for Sarah Barracuda than her final basketball game. It was a David-and-Goliath match-up, with Wasilla the underdogs. The state championship was on the line, and Sarah was suffering from a fractured ankle.
"You've got to discipline yourself, you've got to push yourself to the max, so I think she showed that mental toughness," Nelles said.
She played through the pain. The Warriors were leading in the dying seconds, but their opponents were fighting back. Sarah was fouled.
She had the chance to clinch the game, and the state championship.
"Sarah Heath goes to the free throw line...the Warriors are ten seconds away from the 1982 state championship!"
Coolly, she made the throw.
"Sarah's shot is in there! Sarah just aced the game for the Wasilla Warriors!"
