Tarkington High School senior Taylor Frazier, 17, has accepted a scholarship to Wharton County Junior College. At a signing held on Feb. 13 at Tarkington High School, Frazier committed to playing volleyball in exchange for the scholarship.
Frazier led the LadyHorns in her kill percentage and solo blocks this season and was a strong presence at the net, said LadyHorns Head Volleyball Coach Cassie Street.
“She helps out tremendously in taking our team to the third round of playoffs. I am super proud of her and all that she has accomplished in her volleyball years,” Street said. “I feel privileged to be a part of her volleyball career and to be able to help her fulfill her dream. She will do great at Wharton County Junior College.”
WCJC Volleyball Coach Brandy Delarosa, who was at the signing, said she is looking forward to coaching Frazier.
“She impressed the team during her tryout. The girls meshed really well together. We knew she was a good fit so we are really excited to have her,” Delarosa said. “We are well acquainted with the Tarkington girls volleyball team.”
Frazier’s accomplishments include being named MVP at the Orangefield Tournament, MVP for the LadyHorns volleyball program, All-Star for the Texas Girls Coaches Association during her junior year and TGCA Legacy All-Star during her senior year.
Street is pleased that Frazier will be attending the same college she attended 13 years ago after graduating from Tarkington High School.
“Coach Denise Johnson helped me get a scholarship there and I just wanted to do the same for her,” the coach said.
Frazier is undecided on her major but plans to study the basics in the meantime.
