Senior Warriorette Taylor Means on a drive to put two on the board against Floyd Central. Means recently broke the state record for most three-point shots made in the first half of a game with 8. She also tied the Scottsburg record for most three-point shots made in a game with 10. Means plans to attend IU Kokomo in the fall to continue her basketball career.


After her recent win and record-breaking game against the Clarksville Lady Generals, I got the chance to catch up with Warriorette Taylor Means and ask a few questions about her accomplishments in the game.


Q: “How did you feel when you hit that last three-point shot?”

A: “I honestly had no idea. I had not been informed the whole game on how many three’s I had scored. So when I hit it, I just thought the crowd was going so crazy because I made it even though they fouled me. Since then I have also been informed that I have broken a state record for the most three’s in a half.”

Q: “So… you had no idea you were even close to the record?”

A: “No, I had no idea at all.”

Q: “Even though you weren’t aware, how do you feel about making this accomplishment your senior year?”

A: “I simply cannot believe it. Being in the record books has been my goal in life, and to be in it 3 times is amazing.”

Q: “Since you didn’t know you were close to it, how did you find out that you broke the record?”

A: “When I came out with 5 seconds left, and we were shaking hands with the opponents, I heard it on the intercom. During the game I had just been shooting. I wasn’t trying hard to get the shots up. I let the game come to me and the outcome was terrific. That moment was amazing. I couldn’t have gotten those three’s without my teammates.”

Q: “Speaking of teammates, how did your friends on the team react to the news?”

A: “They were so happy for me! I think they knew; they were feeding me the ball so I could get the record.”


The Warriorettes’ next home game is January 19th against Madison.
