Whether it’s basketball in the driveway, or on the national stage, basketball is a huge part of the Shepard family.
From playing to coaching, they have done it all.
For Taylor Shepard, who is the oldest of six kids, her love for basketball began at a young age. And her passion for the sport continues to this day.
Following her playing days, which included a basketball career at Midland University, she launched a coaching career.
Taylor coached at Elkhorn South High School as an assistant coach. And while she enjoyed her time as an assistant, the drive to be a head coach grew deeper and deeper.
When the West Point-Beemer girls basketball program had an opening, Shepard jumped at the opportunity.
“This is a great community to be a part of. I have absolutely loved my time here so far,” Shepard said.
An additional cherry on top was joining a program with a solid foundation that has been developed over the last several seasons.
“It’s exciting to see a program that has had success in the past. They have gotten really close to making it to state,” Shepard said. “There are a lot of pieces in place to accomplish our goal of making it to the state tournament.”
