Volleyball: Calvary Christian’s Taylor Parks commits to Florida

Taylor Parks, who led Calvary Christian to its first state volleyball title last season, has committed to Florida. 

The rising junior made the announcement via social media on Wednesday. Parks, a setter, was named the Class 3A state player of the year by the Florida Dairy Farmers after a stellar sophomore season in which she finished with 1,076 assists, 89 kills, 283 digs and a .324 hitting percentage. 

She compiled those impressive stats while leading the Warriors through a brutal playoff bracket that included matches against Bishop McLaughlin, Tampa Prep, Ocala Trinity Catholic and Miami Westminster Christian.

Thanks to her performance at the high school and club level, Parks became a highly coveted recruit with multiple offers from major Division I-A schools. But once the Gators offered, she knew where she wanted to go.
