Katie Taylor is a soon to be JH student, going into the sixth grade this year at Carlisle Middle School. Katie is an excellent student and has an absolute love for the game of basketball.

For the past three years Katie has worked hard perfecting her talent on the hardwood. And that talent is BASKETBALL. She has played with Carlisle girls traveling basketball team for the last three years and will be playing with the Carlisle sixth grade traveling team this year.

But outside of the walls of Carlisle she has taken on a different challenge. Katie tried out for the Dayton Viper AAU 6th grade girls traveling basketball team. Katie made the team with a knack for defense, relentless hustle and passion for the game. She has worked hard trying to improve her overall game. But Katie, truly excels at the defensive side of the floor helping the Viper Club be very successful in many tournaments by usually guarding the best player on the opponent's team.


The Dayton Vipers played a total of 10 tournaments this past year at various colleges and high schools around the state. The took 1st place in the championship game at the Adidas/Wendy's Nationals in Franklin,Ohio.

They placed 2nd in the GBA Falcon Classic at Bowling Green University in Bowling Green, Ohio and GBA Capital Classic at Capital University.

The team took 3rd place at the GBA Lady Hornet Classic at Monroe H.S. and OYB Kings Island Memorial Madness.

The team has gone on to qualify for the GBA Nationals in Cincinnati. Ohio.

We wish Katie and the Vipers much luck at Nationals!
