Leander ISD Athletics would like to congratulate Taylor Mathis for being named the Leander ISD Student-Athlete of the Week. Taylor is in the eighth grade, and a two-sport athlete at Canyon Ridge Middle School, excelling in the Lady Eagle cross country and track programs. Not only did she place first in every cross country meet this season, she also took home the district title with a time of 11 minutes, 49 seconds.

“Taylor has trained very hard and has made incredible improvement throughout the season,” Canyon Ridge Girls Athletic Coordinator Brenda Edwards said. “She never takes the easy road during workouts and is always pushing herself and her peers.”

Taylor is a model student, with a straight-A average in the classroom, and is a member of C-squared. Leander ISD is proud to name Taylor Mathis as Student-Athlete of the Week!
