The journey for Sara Johnson came full circle from her freshman season of college soccer to this fall, when she returned to the pitch on which she once competed as the Gopher Soccer program’s director of operations. After making Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium her home for four years, Johnson graduated in 2008 and went on to coach local youth clubs before soccer brought her to Bloomington, Ind., where she spent two years as the director of opera- tions at Indiana. She’s always thinking about those two key stops in her journey, accompanied by her two best friends, pups appropriately named Minny and Indy.
