Athlete of the Month: Kendall Taylor


Kendall Taylor

Basketball has long been a part of Kendall Taylor’s life, and she is excited to see where the sport takes her in the future. The Warrenton sophomore is looking forward to her opportunity to contribute more over the next two years, but first, she is hopeful the Warriors can continue the 2020-21 season as long as possible.

Taylor began playing basketball around age 5 and has spent time playing on the AAU circuit with the Missouri Rockets. This season she has served as a role player for Warrenton, coming off the bench at shooting guard. Taylor is looking forward to extending her playing days into college, as she ultimately pursues her educational endeavors in biomedical engineering.

Beyond basketball, Taylor has devoted time to serving on student council and has taken a particular interest in her science classes.
