You’ve probably seen her alongside the Pride of Oklahoma. You might even know her as the woman who throws fire.
But there’s more to the person behind — or better yet, below — those flaming batons than Sooner sports fans might realize.
Her name is Sarah Harris, and she’s the University of Oklahoma’s one and only twirler. Harris, a broadcast journalism senior in her third year, transferred to OU in Fall 2013 from the University of Alabama to fill the university’s sole twirling position.
While at Alabama, the Knoxville, Tennessee, native had the privilege of performing at a Southeastern Conference Championship. There, she was a member of the Crimsonettes, a twirling line made up of 26 women.
At OU, she’s a one-woman show.
