The position for Corona del Mar High senior Britton Taylor is middle blocker, but she's become more of a pure force in the middle than just a pure blocker.
Taylor has been racking up kills totals lately for the CdM girls' volleyball team that would make some outside hitters jealous.
A career-high 18 kills in a Santa Barbara Tournament of Champions quarterfinal win over Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach. Fourteen kills the next morning — along with a season-high eight blocks — in the semifinals against Los Angeles Marymount. Fourteen more Wednesday, in a four-set win at Beckman that clinched the Sea Kings' sixth straight Pacific Coast League title.
"She's been working hard to connect with our setters," CdM Coach Marissa Booker said. "Sometimes when you watch her, it just seems like she's unstoppable."
With the CIF Southern Section Division I-A playoffs beginning next week, Taylor is stepping up at a good time for the Sea Kings. They're ranked No. 2 in the division now, as defending CIF champion Marymount jumped over them with the four-set win in Santa Barbara.
