Recruit Profile
Determined and versatile player who has a team first mindset and is a great teammate.

I grew up playing soccer and basketball and didn't discover lacrosse until I was in the 8th grade. I quickly fell in love with the sport and committed to focus solely on the game from that point forward. Lacrosse is fairly limited in my area so I began playing year-round for Team 91 Carolina (formerly Carolina Flight) the summer before I started High School. This has required traveling an hour and half to get to practices over the past three years, but the competition is great (both in practice and the national tournaments) and I believe the only way to become the best is to compete against the best. I am primarily a Middie for my travel team but have excelled in Defense as well.

I live in Greenville, NC and play for Rose High School. I started every game my Freshman year and was named as the team's Rookie of the Year. My Sophomore year started off great with my team 4-0 and I had 4 goals and 8 assists through four games - then the remainder of the season was cancelled due to the Pandemic. I tallied 26 goals and 11 assist and was named as the team's MVP my Junior season.

I can add a lot to a team athletically and academically. I am in the National Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society. I am part of the Health Science Academy as I intend to pursue a career in medicine. I am active in student government and was recently chosen to participate in our city's Teen Leadership Institute. I continue to push myself each semester with AP and honors classes.

Taylor is one of the hardest working players I've ever coached. She puts in time on her own outside of team training and practices to improve her skills. Her hard work has payed and she has shown tremendous growth in the time I've been coaching her. She's willing to put the team needs first, and has actually been playing defense instead of midfield more recently. She has had a huge impact on defense and has become one of our most reliable players. She would be an incredible asset to any college program.

Taylor Padgett is an incredibly hard-working athlete. I started coaching her lacrosse team at JH Rose during her sophomore year and have been repeatedly impressed with her work ethic, skills and character since then. She performs difficult drills and tasks with ease because she gains full awareness of what needs to be done without needing details over and over. I can always depend on her to get a job done, and she is constantly wanting to do what she can to improve her already impressive lacrosse skills. She’s strong with her both hands, quick on her feet, easily scoops groundballs and has the most pin-point accurate shot of anyone I’ve ever coached. I often ask her to help demonstrate drills at practice because she executes skills flawlessly. She guides her teammates and does so without being condescending. I fully believe that she’ll shine brighter as a college athlete, because she’d be with teammates that have the same level of skills as her.
