“It kind of took me by surprise,” she said. “When I came into this season, I kind of wanted to be very aggressive and I had a mindset of what I was going to do. I was trying to be a lot more aggressive toward the ball and follow a lot more of the shots. So that has been good for me so far.”
At 10-0-1, the Clippers are looking once again to make a deep tournament run just as they did when Taylor and her teammates played.
“This season has been awesome,” said Bresnahan. “All the girls on the team are like my sisters. So, we’re coming to practice every day and having a great time, playing a sport that we all love.”
A recent graduate of Union College, Taylor has come to a few of the Clippers’ games this fall and told her little sister that she was impressed with what she saw.
“I went to all their games when I was little,” Bresnahan said. “I kind of aspired to be one of them when I was older, and it is cool to think that I might be that for some younger kids now. It’s nice to be that.”
