Taylor earned All-CAC First Team honors after finishing fifth at the 2018 CAC Women’s Cross Country Championships hosted by Southern Virginia University (Buena Vista, Va.) on October 27. She ran the 6K course at the Vista Links Golf Course in 24:22.8 and was the only underclassmen to finish in the Top 5.
