Congratulations to Sammamish senior Promise Taylor, who was recently recognized as one of the best local athletes by The Seattle Times.

Three times a year, The Seattle Times honors the best athletes and coaches in Seattle-area high school team sports with its Star Times all-area teams. According to the Seattle Times, Taylor “recorded four triple-doubles in finishing the season averaging 24 points, 13.4 rebounds and 6.7 blocks per game. The Ole Miss commit was named the KingCo 2A/3A Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team pick.”

Taylor, who is 6’5, played center for the Lady Totems basketball team. When asked about Taylor, the Sammamish Athletics Director Wes Newton said, “Promise is a great young lady who remains very humble even with all her accomplishments and success. We are very lucky to have her at Sammamish.”
