Havel has maintained a GPA of 3.28 as an education major. She earned a spot on the 2010-11 Southern Conference Honor Roll.

Character

Havel enters the 2011 season as a team captain after a breakout 2010 campaign. She plays at the heart of the floor as a middle blocker and provides the emotional spark on and off the court. “Sarah is an outstanding leader on and off the floor for us here at College of Charleston,” said head coach Jason Kepner. “She has a great personality and positive attitude which allows her to relate and communicate with all the players.  I am very happy with the way she works as a liaison between the coaches and players.  I could not ask for a better representative and leader for our volleyball team.”

Community

Havel went on medical missionary trips to Honduras through the L.A.M.B. Institute in 2010 and 2011, providing medical aid to poverty ridden areas. She traveled with teammate and close friend Hayley Harrell as the two girls, along with Harrell’s sister, Jamie, helped treat 617 people in three days of clinics in Tegucigalpa. For their work, the trio was featured in the July edition of Volleyball Magazine.

Competition

In 2010, Havel recorded a breakout junior season. She was named First Team All-Southern Conference and selected for the SoCon All-Tournament team. Against Elon, she tallied 17 blocks, which set a new school record and tied the conference record. She was picked as the October Player of the Month and twice named SoCon Defensive Player of the Week. In 2009, Havel was named Second Team All-Conference and selected for the All-Tournament team. She set career highs with 19 kills which she accomplished twice. Havel enters the 2011 season ranked sixth all-time in school history with 320 blocks.
