Notable: Taylor was a three-year starter at catcher and third base for North Johnston, helping the Panthers make deep playoff runs in each of the past three seasons. “I’ll remember the friendships and all of our accomplishments,” she said. “We didn’t get what we ultimately wanted (a state championship) but we still have a lot to be proud of.” … She hit .400 or better in three of her four seasons at North, including a .406 batting average with 24 RBIs as a senior. Her career on-base percentage was over .500. … She wants to improve her mental approach and her speed at the college level.
