Senior captain Miriam Taylor was featured in the Lake News for a recent record set for Camdenton. She has scored 20 or more goals in all four of her years representing the Lakers.

After the team played in the Moberly Tournament this past weekend, in which they defeated Kirksville 6-1 and tied with Moberly in a 3-3 contest, the Lady Lakers took on West Plains on Tuesday night in an Ozark Conference battle.

Camdenton won the contest 10-0 to improve to 7-4-1 on the season. Taylor scored three goals on the night, which put her at 20 on the season, clenching that record. When Coach J.D. Hunter informed her of her accomplishment, Taylor’s reply was simple.

“I couldn’t have done it without the team.”

The 20 goals extends the Career Scoring mark for the school that she already held. As Coach JD Hunter noted in a Facebook post at the beginning of April, she set the Career Assist mark of 45 in the game against Hillcrest.

First, Senior forward Miriam Taylor had two assists on the night which gives her 45 assists in her career. This makes Miriam Camdenton’s top career assist leader (to go along with her 78 career goals whic his also a Camdenton record). Great job, Miriam. She told me tonight that she’s even more excited about the assist record than she is about the goal scoring record.

While the Lady Laker’s record book is not current, it’s easy to see that it will be rewritten by the time the season ends.

Miriam will be taking her scoring prowess to Lewis & Clark CC in the Fall. She’ll be joined there in 2014 by Nicole Howard of Rolla, which should strike some fear into more than a few defensive lines down the road.
