In the least surprising bit of news of the week, News4Jax released their Girls Hoops 1st and 2nd Team selections, with Taylor, once again, earning the highest ranking of any girl in St Johns County by making the 2nd Team. Her wonderful teammates Maddie Lippy and Emily McIntosh earned Honorable Mention nods to accompany Taylor in the rankings.
It is clear from both the DuvalSports and News4Jax All Area Selections that rival coaches and area scouts view Taylor as the highest ranked prospect coming out of St Johns County this year. Unfortunately, Taylor was not able to capture the hearts of the St Augustine Record and earn St Johns County Player of the Year. We all know Taylor will put her head down and put in the work needed to help her team win, so we can only hope she gets the recognition she deserves in her Senior Season.
