COACH GALLIMORE ON TAYLOR
"Every year Liz has been battling more and more for her playing time on this team and has been sort of a workman on this team. She does well at the midfield spot. It's a better suited position for her because of her pace. She sees the field well, she serves the ball well and again she is good in the air so she can be a ball winner. She'll be with a couple of other people competing for that spot. We look for good things from Liz as a senior. She'll be a very positive contributor for us."
