SOUTH BEND – What Taylor Parmley did in Friday night's game against South Bend Washington has never been done before.
"We expect big things from Taylor," Mishawaka coach Kevin Gradeless said. “But this was a little above and beyond."
That night, she set the school and Northern Indiana Conference scoring records with 51 points and 23 rebounds in a single game.
"She's definitely been our leading scorer and she always has been able to score. Earlier this season she scored, I think, 25 in a half," Gradeless said. "But to score 51 is a pretty incredible feat."
"It was probably during the third quarter, I looked over at the scores and I was like, 'dang, that's a lot,'" Parmley said. "But it didn't faze me."
High numbers are nothing new for Parmley. She's got a 4.3 GPA on a 4.0 scale and taking all honors classes.
"Taylor just works hard at whatever she does,” Gradeless said. "That's why she excels at everything she does."
And the best part?
"She's only a sophomore," said Gradeless, unable to keep a smile from taking over his face. "Which is extremely exciting, obviously, to have a sophomore do what she does and we expect great things in the future from her as well."
It's only a matter of time before the college coach’s start beating down her door.
"It hasn't started, but I have a feeling it's going to start now that I think she's got the attention of some people with what she did on Friday," Gradeless said. "And we know she's going to continue to have outstanding performances."
