Taylor still has her senior season left to play for the Lady Lakers, and her current coach knows that Lewis and Clark will be getting a quality player to add to their roster.
“Miriam is a tenacious competitor, and blessed with wonderful speed,” Coach J.D. Hunter said. “She is a great leader on and off the field. What they get with her is consistency. She’s never scored less than twenty goals since her freshman year.”
As JD Hunter noted on the Lady Laker’s Facebook Page
Miriam is currently Camdenton’s leading goal scorer in the program’s history and is a three year starter for the Lady Lakers (the photo above is as a freshman in a game at Nixa). She follows former Laker Sandra Shore to the Flyers. Shore has completed her two years at Lewis & Clark where she was the starting keeper both years.
