VIDEO: Interview with Victoria Taylor
DMA's Victoria Taylor is this week's Delaware Sports Zone High School Athlete of the Week.

On Tuesday night, Victoria helped her team continue on with their undefeated season as they soared past Archmere in 3 sets.

The outside hitter finished the game with an outstanding 20 kills. But what's more outstanding, is the fact that this Junior hitter was introduced to volleyball in the 8th grade.

"I just started recently and some people find that hard to believe. And it was scary because I come into this gym my freshman year and I see how good Cassie Kowalski is, how good Rachel Wade was when we had her - and they were hitting the ball straight down and I said some day I want to be like them."

What Head Coach John Grossman thinks about his junior outside hitter:

"Victoria works really hard. She's very mindful about what she's doing and she's very coachable. She picks up whatever we need her to learn or do. When I first saw her freshman year, I could see this potential that she's been able to work hard and get to."

What motivates Victoria to continue to improve and succeed in the sport of volleyball:

"All the influence that my parents have given and all the help that I've gotten from everyone around, showing me what to do - it's just really nice."

Victoria Taylor will be in action with her team as they travel to take on Charter Force for a Thursday night battle.
