Receiving this honor caps off a truly remarkable senior season in which she won the first Tewaaraton Award by a goalkeeper, IWLCA Player of the Year and Goalie of the Year awards, as well as First Team All-American and All-Big Ten.
In 2019, Taylor had 23 starts, a .551 save percentage, 217 saves and just an 8.44 goals-against average. She also reached the 700-save mark for her career and set the record for most conference player of the week awards with six in a row from March 5 to April 9.
Over the course of her career, Taylor played just over 4,888 minutes, allowed less than nine goals per game and saved over 50 percent of shots faced on goal. With her in net, Maryland finished with a record of 85-3.
Each winner of this award is also in the running for the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year award, which will be presented on CBS Sports Network on June 24.
