Height: 5’5”

Position: DS

High School: LaSalle Catholic College Preparatory

Honors: Northwest Oregon Second Team All-League

Why the rise?

Taylor transferred from Central Catholic High School to LaSalle this past season. After playing on JV2 and JV for the Rams, she made it on the Varsity squad for the Falcons. Starting out as a defensive specialist for the team, Rivera (the starting libero) went out with a concussion, and Taylor was given the opportunity to take over while Rivera was out. That spot stayed Taylors the rest of the season. She brought athleticism, steady serve receive, and an all-out mentality defensively to the back row that could not be stopped.
