The journey for senior outside hitter Taylor Gross has taken her from an initial stop at Stephen F. Austin State University to a leadership role for the Mavericks. Transferring from SFA after her freshman season, Gross had instant impact. She was named to the 2012 UTA Hilton Invitational All-Tournament team in her first weekend and was second team All-Western Athletic Conference. “At first I thought it was going to be more difficult,” she says of the transition between schools. “When I came here, coach (Diane) Seymour and the girls were really welcoming. The reason I loved it here was that it felt more like home to me.” Gross entered her senior season as one of the top returning players for a program that reached the 2013 Sun Belt Conference Championship game. She finished second on the team in kills and blocks last season and was a second team All-Sun Belt selection. “Being a senior, regardless of if you are a starter, means you’re in a leadership role. I know we have to step up and get our little babies in the basket ready so they can learn from us.”
