Sarah Parsons Wolter '05

Class of 2015
Soccer, Hockey, Lacrosse


Sarah Parsons is among the very best athletes ever to attend Nobles. A three-sport athlete, Sarah graduated with 13 varsity letters accumulated over four years of soccer, five years of ice hockey, and four years of lacrosse. While her scoring feats attracted attention, Sarah was an incredibly gifted two-way player who always put the team’s needs first. Sarah led by example and was fiercely competitive and disciplined. She was a critical component in evolving the Nobles girls ice hockey and soccer teams from strong ISL teams to New England Division I champions, while representing the school with integrity and humility.

In her four years on the soccer team, Sarah amassed 85 goals and 25 assists, making her the school’s all-time leading scorer. She was a three-time All-ISL selection, a two-time All-State and two-time All-New England selection. In those four years, the Nobles team went 53-7-5, winning two ISL Championships and a Class A New England Championship. She served as Captain her senior year and was the ISL MVP.  

In the winter, Sarah dominated for five years and helped push Nobles into the national spotlight as home to one of the country’s best ice hockey programs. During the five years Sarah played for Nobles, the team went 120-7-3, winning five ISL Championships. During this time, Nobles won their first New England Class A Championship in 2002, and then recaptured the title in 2004 and 2005. Sarah was a Captain her senior year, an All-ISL selection four times, ISL/Boston Globe league MVP in 2004 and 2005, and was awarded the John Carlton Memorial Award by the Boston Bruins her senior year for academic and athletic excellence.  She played in 129 of 130 games during that stretch for Nobles, missing only one game as an 8th grader. In those 129 games, Sarah scored 222 goals and delivered 184 assists for a school record 406 points.  While at Nobles, Sarah played for the USA Hockey Under 22 team, beginning when she was 15 years old as the youngest member of the team. She joined the USA Hockey Women’s National team at age 17, again as the youngest member of the team.

In her four years on the varsity lacrosse team, Sarah scored 213 goals, and was named All-ISL three times. She played a huge role in the program's turnaround, leading the team to consecutive winning seasons, always near the top of the ISL.

One of her most valued accomplishments was winning every game in which she participated against rival Milton Academy for 6 years in 3 sports.  Sarah completed her high school athletic career by being named the female athlete of the year (2004-05) with the Will McDonough Award by The Boston Globe.  She also received the Nobles Shield in 2005.

After graduation, Sarah played on the US Olympic Hockey Team. At age 18, she was the team’s youngest member. During the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, she scored four goals and three assists in five games, which was the eighth highest point total in the tournament. She earned a Bronze Medal for the United States. Sarah also represented the US in three IIHF Women's World Hockey Championships, earning a Silver Medal in 2007 and Gold in 2005 and 2008.

Sarah attended Dartmouth College, where her dominance on the ice continued. In 2007 alone, she was the Big Green Rookie of the Year, ECAC Rookie of the Year, first team all-league, and the Scoring Leader among rookies. In 2009, despite breaking her leg at the beginning of the season, Sarah was selected as the ECAC Hockey Tournament's Most Outstanding Player when Dartmouth won the tournament. In her senior year, she was the leading scorer in the ECAC, and was a finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Award as the most outstanding female college hockey player in the country. Sarah graduated as the eighth highest scorer in Dartmouth women’s hockey history with 156 points. In all four of her years at Dartmouth, Sarah was on the All Ivy Academic team, and for her junior and senior years, was a finalist for the ECAC student athlete of the year. At her Dartmouth graduation, Sarah received the college’s highest athletic honor, the Kenneth Archibald Prize, for being “the best all-around athlete, of great academic prowess and of high moral character.”
