Taylor Zapeda


Taylor has played basketball since she was in Kindergarten. She played both varsity softball and basketball at Bellevue High School. Taylor graduated from Gonzaga University with a B.A. in sociology and a M.A. in Elementary Education. While she was there, Taylor continued to pursue her passion of basketball and coached 7th and 8th grade girls at a local school in Spokane. Taylor is passionate for sports and believes basketball gives athletes an outlet to improve their skills and build lifelong relationships. She has followed the Local Hoops Academy from the beginning and is grateful to be a part of the organization. Taylor is currently a third-grade teacher and is excited for the opportunity to reach kids outside of the classroom.
