Hudson resident Taylor Stimson, a senior at Walsh Jesuit High School, recently made a verbal commitment to continue her academic and softball careers at St. John's University in Queens, N.Y.

Stimson plays to study optometry. She received the U.S Army Reserve National Scholar Athlete Award last year and plays for the Florida Gold Stingrays during the summer.

Stimson was named to the Northeast Ohio All star game and was named one of the top 10 players in Northeast Ohio.
