I'm assuming you mean the part of "The Popsicle War" before the rape libel, but even then, I don't recall any spike, within the comic, in Sara's popularity or respect. I could imagine people at school noticing her more because of her makeover, but that was some time before "The Popsicle War" started.
It was a variety of small things, like Charlotte in the 2nd panel here
Eh, Sara's basically always been roughly as popular as Penny, I think. They're best friends, they run in the same clique, attend the same parties, etc. This is a case of Charlotte (and the rest of the IG) being familiar with them because they're the enemies. Charlotte's super-religious and probably liked that pre-makeover Sara seemed very reserved and righteously angry when she did
talk. Penny she probably saw all kinds
of flaws in, and Michelle's always been boy-crazy. Katy-Ann pissed Charlotte off because they had such different views on the same book. Brandi's promiscuous, so basically the same problem as Michelle... So, of that group, pre-gay Sara is the least hate-able to a typical fundamental Christian.
