Taylor Clark, a 5-foot-7 central defender from Ross High School will attend the Mount in the fall and play soccer, Lions’ Head Coach Josh Hess announced today.

Clark earned First Team All-Conference honors during both her junior and senior seasons and played in the All-Star Game her senior year as well.

 “Taylor is a player who will bring athleticism, work effort and terrific attitude to our program,’’ Hess said. “As a center-back she is strong and good in 1v1 situations and has improved a great deal in her distribution out of the back.

Kayla Bush, Clark’s coach at Ross, said this about Taylor.

“She is a fantastic player on and off the field,’’ Bush stated. “I cannot speak highly enough of her. She is a big reason that we went undefeated this past year. Clark is a very smart defender and will always give you 100 percent, both in a game and at practice.”

 “We did not think we were going to have Clark here and we feel fortunate that she has made the decision to become a Lions’ player,’’ Hess added. “She will fit in really well on the field and off, and she has proven herself to be a terrific presence in the locker room with other groups.”

Taylor is the daughter of Coby Johnson and Jeff Elliot. She intends to pursue Physical Therapy at the Mount.
