CARROLLTON, Ga. – Head women’s basketball coach Scott Groninger has added another piece to the 2018 recruiting class, as local prep standout Taylor Brown of Carrollton High School is the newest player set to report to campus this fall.
Originally from Chicago, Brown moved to Carrollton and was a standout for the Trojans for three years, including helping CHS to a 29-2 season record and a quarterfinal berth in the GHSA State Playoffs as a junior.
“It’s always good to have some local talent on your roster to create some community excitement, and that’s what we did with Taylor,” said Groninger. “We’re excited she’s going to stay right here in Carrollton, and are looking forward to how she can help our program continue to improve,” Groninger added.
