• Collegiate All-American 2015

Sarah Buonopane began playing rugby in 2011 at Stonehill College where she quickly fell in love with the sport. During her senior year in 2015, after she led her team to a Rugby Northeast 7s Championship Title, Buonopane was easily regarded by her coach as the “MVP” of the game. That same year, she was recognized as the Women’s Rugby Northeast Player of the Year and earned Collegiate All-American Honors, as well.

Following her impressive collegiate career, Buonopane played for the Northeast Academy and Beantown Rugby before she transferred to Old Blue New York’s Women’s 7s squad. In 2016, she was granted an official invitation to USA Rugby's high-performance residency camp.

In 2017, Buonopane made her HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series debut in Sydney where she became the first player to earn her cap by coming up solely through the academy pathway. Continuing her growth as an Eagle, the athlete next competed in the Dubai Sevens 2017 where she helped the Eagles Sevens win Silver.
