Numbers and actions speak louder than words. And Taylor Rawl was bigger on the former pair than the latter in helping turn the Lugoff-Elgin softball team into a force in the state’s 4A ranks.A four-year starting catcher for the Lady Demons, Rawl helped Coach James Marlow’s charges come within a whisker from earning a berth in this past spring’s 4A Upper State championship tournament, having lost a 5-4 decision to Northwestern in the District III finale.Rawl, a four-time all-conference selection and a member of the 2014 High School Sports Report’s 4A All-State Team, capped a memorable senior season and career by signing a National Letter of Intent to continue her academic and softball pursuits at Columbia College. She made things official last Thursday in a ceremony inside the L-E Wellness Center in which she was joined by her family as well as her Lady Demon teammates and those from her summer travel softball squad.In addition to her post-season awards, Rawl saved the best for last as the 2014 L-E graduate batted a career-best .473 in her final go ‘round for the red and blue.
