#RS-5 Nikita Taylor
Coach’s Comments: Nikita is one of
the most athletic Lady Bulldogs in recent memory. She will be red-shirting this
season as well. She won the state championship in the 100 meter, 200 meter and
long jump as a senior in high school. This should give you all a good picture of
what she is capable of! We expect that Nikita will be a scorer and defender and
make us better this year in practice. She will get us ready to play against
Hometown: Holly Springs, Miss.

Taylor was a Mississippi AAA State Champion in 100M, 200M, and Long Jump as a senior.
