Taylor Leingang — Girls Basketball
Taylor has stepped up in incredible ways for the girls basketball team in the month of February. She has been called on to play in big situations and has done an outstanding job. She has been asked to play defense on the opposing teams’ best post players, and she has shown she doesn’t back down from a challenge. She has held several of our opponents’ great scorers to minimal points. She plays fearlessly! She brings great energy to the floor off the bench. Taylor not only brings her defensive intensity to the game, but she also has done a great job of being a solid player for us on the offensive end.
During the month of February, Taylor added nearly 5 points and 3 rebounds per game to our totals, including shooting 38% from 3-point land. Those stats are incredibly beneficial when we play so many tough teams in the WDA.
Taylor has an incredible work ethic in practice. After a drill is over, you can almost always find Taylor by herself shooting extra free throws or working on post moves at an open basket. That kind of determination and drive to get better is a huge reason why our team went 7-1 in the month of February. Taylor is the kind of kid every team loves to have. She always gives 110% effort in every drill at practice. She has an incredibly positive attitude, and her love for the game which is demonstrated by her upbeat demeanor, makes being in the gym every day an absolute joy.
