Personal

Playing as a starter my freshman year, I played in 53 games for the Lady Saints, with 11 driven home and 20 stolen bases on the year. I had three different three-hit games for Seward in 2016 including a four RBI performance win. I also had four games in which I stole multiple bases including Career Best three swipe game. In summer 2016, I earned a spot on TEAM BC’s U21 Girls Baseball Team where we competed in the Canadian National’s in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick. I was a great asset to the Provincial Team as a Starter, hitting in 2nd position, playing Center Field & helping my team win the Silver Medal. Returning to the Lady Saints for my sophomore year, I started out my season quickly making it to the Top Leaderboard for Stolen Bases in Division 1 for the Kansas JayHawk Community College Conference. Helping lead my team to a record-breaking season, the Lady Saints were 37-17 overall, 12-7 in Conference play putting us in 2nd place, and finishing the season with 29 stolen bases. Committing to Tabor College for my junior year, I secured another spot starting Center Field for the Bluejays. With 25 stolen bases on the year and helping the team to a record season, winning both the regular season conference and the conference tournament for the first time in Tabor Softball history, where I hit an inside the park home run to deep center. We then moved on to the NAIA National Championship Opening Round in Oklahoma City where we left with a record of 1-2. I am currently in my final year of college softball as a senior, I am working hard to be successful and have fun!

Abilities summary: 65mph throw, left handed slap hitter, 2.5s home to first, 11.2s home to home

Andrea Gustafson

Garden City Community College Softball Coach

I had the privilege of coaching Taylor for her first two years of college while at Seward County in Liberal, Kansas. Taylor came in as an infielder and hadn’t played much outfield at the time. We needed an outfielder and Taylor quickly became our starting centerfielder. As soon as we talked to her about needing her to play centerfield there was never a day that passed in her two years playing for me that she didn’t work as hard as she could to become the best player she could be. Taylor is one of the hardest working players I have ever had the opportunity to coach and one of the most reliable outfielders to play for me. She gets a good jump of the ball, has good speed, and a strong arm. Offensively, Taylor is a consistent slapper that has the ability to steal bases and make things happen. Off the field, Taylor is a good kid, hard worker, and great teammate. I would highly recommend Taylor to any program looking for these types of qualities in a player.
