Taylor Hill graduated from Greenbrier East high school in 2016, and signed to play basketball at Green Mountain College in Poultney, VT.
Hill was home for a visit over Christmas break, and described how the season is going.
“I’m starting for the team. We only have one senior and one junior. I went up there and worked really hard, trying to show I deserved a starting position. They’re rebuilding this year, and a few people dropped off the team. There are 10 players on the team this year. I play the three guard, the shooting guard.
“We’re the Green Mountain Eagles. We’re 0-7 so far. We had a couple of close games, but couldn’t finish them out. Our execution needs some work, but we play with a lot of heart and a lot of hustle. It can be frustrating, but I trust my coach, and I trust my teammates. I know we’ll get it together soon,” says Hill.
Hill is one of the main shooters on the team. She has had two double doubles. The team doesn’t play a fast-paced game, usually slowing things down, a pace more suited to a young team.
Hill says, “The accents are funny up there. They make fun of my accent. It’s a different world.”
Green Mountain College is located on the Vermont/New York border, three hours south of Montreal, Canada. The college has about 650 students enrolled.
Taylor is the daughter of Ronnie and Missy Hill.
