Taylor Walton

YC senior guard


The lowdown:

Taylor provided an outside presence for the Yuma Catholic offense this year. The sharpshoot­ing guard drilled 37 3-pointers in her senior season and collected a season-high six triples vs. American Leadership Academy-Gilbert North. Taylor produced four 20-plus point games and reached double-figures in 13 games while helping Yuma Catholic (16-3 AIA) to the 3A Metro West region title and the second round of the 3A state tournament.

Coach Bob McGalliard:

“Taylor is a pure shooter who has worked hard to become a complete player. During her four years at Yuma Catholic, Taylor has made countless big threes for us. She has become an excellent mid-range shooter in out half court offense. But Taylor’s improvemen­ts as a defender, rebounder and passer have made her a great basketball player. Watching Taylor grow as a player and a person has been fun to watch.”
