Maryland-bound Taylor Mikesell wins American Family Insurance Women's 3-Point Championship

Future Maryland Terrapin Taylor Mikesell put on a show Tuesday en route to winning the eighth annual American Family Insurance High School Girls 3-Point Championship from Wagner High in San Antonio.

Mikesell, the No. 32 ranked girls player according to ESPN out of Jackson (Massillon, Ohio), scored a total of 65 points out of a possible 90 in three rounds. She defeated Mercer County’s (Ky.) Lexy Lake in the final by a score of 23-16.

“First off, (Wagner) high school is insane,” Mikesell told the Canton Repository. “Jackson is a pretty big, pretty nice high school but this had a band wing, a gym wing, an education wing. It was huge, the gym was packed!”
