Cleveland's Taylor Holicky Earns Prep of the Week Honors

Posted: Updated:

The Cleveland girls' basketball team is looking to improve on last year's 10–14 record, and are on pace to do so, if they win two more.

News 12 Sports Erick Lind says the Clippers have been improving over the last three years thanks to Taylor Holicky (Ho–litch–key).

The junior center is breaking school records on the way, and she's our KEYC Scheels All–Sports Girls Prep Athlete of the Week.

When it comes to the basketball court, Taylor Holicky does it all for the Cleveland Clippers.

There is just one thing...head coach George Schoenborn doesn't know when to rest the junior, because her motor doesn't quit.

Holicky is averaging a double–double this year with 15 points and 12 rebounds per game, but the Clippers co–captain is doing more than that with awesome defense.

She has recorded over 100 blocks and over 100 steals this season, recording a triple–double earlier this year, falling two blocks short of a quadruple double.

Holicky is also a great passer, but she knows in order for her team to win, she has to get everyone involved.

Schoenborn says Holicky is a game changer, and proved that the last day of January when she broke the school's single game girls scoring record with 37 against Martin Luther.

Holicky's next big mark in the scoring book is coming soon, as she entered the week needing 9 points to break the 1000 point mark for her career.

She is more concerned about getting the Clippers two more wins so they can improve on last seasons record, but it is very possible with Holicky leading the way.

That's why she's our KEYC Scheels All–Sports Girls Prep Athlete of the Week.
