Tayler Dragoo '12 came to Rosary from St. Bruno's Elementary School. Since graduating last year Dragoo has been at UCLA on a soccer scholarship. She was a member of the Rosary varsity soccer team for four years and also played for the Legends FC club team.
While a Royal, Tayler was named Rookie of the Year, Freshman Athlete of the Year, Junior Athlete of the Year, Offensive MVP, and also earned Scholar Athlete Honors. She was a team captain for two years, All-CIF, and All-Trinity League three times and 2nd Team All-County. Tayler scored 63 goals in her career at Rosary. She was named as one of two outstanding athletes for the Class of 2012.
While at Rosary, Tayler stated that some of her goals for the future included playing professional soccer, making the national team and playing for the Woman's World Cup. She is well on her way to attaining these goals, although she may not have taken exactly the path she was expecting!
On January 20, Tayler left for Switzerland to try out for the Swiss National Team. After a stop in London, she went on to her destination, where she was successful in her tryout. She has been named to the Switzerland women's national football team!
The Rosary community is very proud of Tayler and her accomplishments, and we all look forward to following her career as she plays not only for UCLA, but also for the Swiss.
