The Randolph College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our WildCat of the Week. The sixth student-athlete selected for the year is women's soccer player Taylor Gamble.
Gamble has been a huge part of the WildCats backline this year. She has started every game at outside back, making huge contributions in stopping opposing offenses. Gamble has also helped in the center of the defense when called upon. This past Saturday, she added her first-career goal, slotting home a penalty as cool as can be.
