Comments by Coach Mike McCormick

To be succinct, Taylor Burl is a coach’s dream student-athlete. From her charismatic, mature personality, to her God-given high-stepping fluid stride, to her unconditional leadership and devotion to team, and to her consistently outstanding performances; Taylor is everything a coach could want in any athlete. All who meet her and/or see her perform marvel at her wonderful attributes and abilities. She has made an indelible mark on Newburyport and Cape Ann League Track. Truly I cannot envision anyone who is more of what I believe high school track and athletics is all about: devoted, talented scholar-athletes that wonderfully represent our schools and the great, noble sport of track and field.

Next year, Taylor will take her talents, both on the track and in the classroom, to Penn State University.
