A transfer from Arizona, Hemmings competed for the Rams during her junior and senior seasons, 2009-11 earning the title of captain as voted by her peers in the 2010-11 year. After overcoming an injury early in the season, Hemmings started 21 of 22 contests, leading the team with 3.2 assists per game.
"I think Sara is a great addition to our staff,” commented Holt, who has not had a full coaching staff in two years. “She clearly understands the philosophy and direction of our team and wants to continue to be a part of putting a championship program together."
During her time in college, Hemmings served as an assistant coach and counselor to four Northern Colorado-area basketball and volleyball teams, including the Fort Collins Fever Basketball Club and Fossil Ridge High School.
"I am very excited to stay involved in the program and remain a part of the CSU community,” said Hemmings. “Being familiar with Coach Holt's system as well as her standards and expectations for the team will allow me to easily transition into the assistant coach position and hopefully make an impact quicker."
The Greeley, Colo., native began her college career at Northern Colorado as a two-sport athlete in basketball and soccer in 2006-07. She then transferred to compete on the women’s soccer team for Arizona in 2007-08 before making the final move to CSU.
Hemmings, an academic all-Mountain West selection in 2010 and 2011, graduated Cum Laude from Colorado State in May with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
