Last year the Greyhound Girls' Swim Team lost a few highly influential senior swimmers. This could have been detrimental to the Hounds' success this season if not for acquiring freshman Taylor McCoy. Rumors had been heard of her skill but no one could expect what was to come. After just one meet under coach Ed Davis, Taylor broke a standing 13-year old record for the 100 yard backstroke.
From that moment on, everyone knew she would be a key addition to the Greyhounds' swimming force. She would go on later to break her record again at the district meet. Her success wasn't just limited to backstroke; she broke the district meet record in the 200 IM, was part of the 4x100 relay team that also broke the school's record from 2003, and was also a key player in the breaking of the school's 200 Medley Relay record from 1999.
After all of this success one would think that she was an upperclassman on her way out of the program, but we have to remember that she is only a freshman and still has to compete at the state meet and has another three seasons with the high school swim team. We had a chance to interview her and ask her about her reaction to breaking the backstroke record her first meet, her swimming history, as well as her expectations for the rest of her swimming career, in high school and beyond.
