I have emailed Sabrina twice to check on my query, as suggested by their auto-response of receipt, and have not heard a peep from them. Anna was much more responsive. I would like to query someone else in this agency, but do not want to do so until i hear from Rachel. She requested a partial for another novel of mine and was very responsive, but that was quite a long time ago. It has been 95 days since my original query!

Update: ER from Sabrina (submissions editor) 3/11/18 - form letter, which seems to imply it is a "no" from the agency as a whole.
