Sara Tindall‐Woodman ‘97
Track and Cross Country Star Broke Records. An accomplished runner who earned nine varsity letters during her Pingry career, Sara Tindall ran with such heart that some called her “The Animal” because of her ability to outkick her opponents. In cross country, she captained the team as a senior and won three individual Prep State Championships (1993, 1995, 1996), a Parochial B State Championship (1996), and a Colonial Hills Conference Championship (1996). Sara led Pingry to four consecutive Prep State Team Championships (1993-1996), she finished undefeated in dual-meet competition during her junior and senior seasons, and she garnered All-State honors as a senior. On the track, she was the Parochial B State Champion (1600m) and the Colonial Hills Conference Champion (800m and 1600m) as a senior captain. Sara also brought home Somerset County Championships in the 800m (1996, 1997) and the 1600m (1997) while on her way to earning All-State honors as a senior (1600m). She broke multiple Pingry records in both cross country and track, and her 1600m time of 5:01.7 remained a school record at the time of her Hall of Fame induction. Sara continued her athletics career at Brown University and became two-time Ivy League Champion in cross country (1999, 2000). She also led the Bears to their first-ever Ivy League Cross Country Team Championship (1999) and their first two appearances in the NCAA Division I National Championships. Sara captained the cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track teams as a senior and was named an NCAA Division I All-American. She is a member of the Brown University Athletics Hall of Fame.
