Taylor Nelson and Catelyn Narragon

Taylor Nelson, left, and Catelyn Narragon celebrate New Prairie’s 4-0 win over South Bend Clay on Tuesday in the Class 2A Mishawaka Marian Sectional. The match was the new program’s debut in the state tournament.

The road to her school’s first sectional win has been a long and literally rocky one for New Prairie’s Taylor Nelson, and the team’s struggles in its debut season are only a part of the story.

When Nelson was in fourth grade, she was nearly killed in a head-on collision involving her family on Route 2.
