How has participating in high school athletics benefited you?
“I have teammates that have become my best friends, and coaches that I know will help me with more than just volleyball. I have made memories that will last a lifetime. I also have to be disciplined and manage time well”
  
What made you decide to play the sport for which you were named the Penn
Station Athlete of the Month?
“I grew up watching my sister play, so I wanted to do the same. As soon as I was on my first volleyball team for Mational Trails in 5th, I knew it was the sport I wanted to continue to play for as long as I could.”
 
Plans after high school:
“I am going to college to major in education, I would also like to continue my volleyball career.”
 
“Taylor has been the epitome of a student athlete since her Freshman year.
She is kind, caring and very competitive on the court and in the classroom.”
 -Steve Tincher, Athletic Director
 
“Taylor conveys the best leadership and models the best qualities that
one can hope for in a student athlete.”
 -Nathan Dockter, Principal
