Senior Salute: Samantha Taylor

Sam Taylor

BIG RAPIDS — The Crossroads Charter Academy volleyball team is off to a 1-0 start to the season and Samantha Taylor is a key reason why. The senior is a leader on a young Cougars team that continues to grow with every set.

“It’s hard sometimes,” Taylor said. “But we’ve done a lot of team bonding and our chemistry has come a long way. Since they’re learning everything now as freshmen and sophomores, they’re going to be on varsity two, three more years and be able to help the younger kids.”

For Taylor, her goals this season are clear.

“As a team, we want more wins than losses,” Taylor said. “We also want to win all five home games. Personally, I really want to get to know everybody on the team. I realized that I didn’t know these people and I really wanted to be a good leader for them.

“I want to grow as a leader and enjoy this last year with everybody.”
