WSU Athletic Communications

Washington State Volleyball outside hitter Taylor Mims won one of Montana’s highest awards this past weekend when she was named the female winner of the Little Sullivan Award. The award is given to someone who is from the state of Montana and has shown great class, has good character, and has excelled in their sport. It has been given yearly since 1955 to one male and one female recipient.

Mims, who is originally from Billings, Montana, was the leader for the Cougars this past season and was named to the All-Pac-12 first team as well as honorable mention for multiple All-American lists. Her 2017 season included school top-10 records in kills, attack attempts, kills per set, points, and points per set. Her 599 points this past season were the second in the conference and the 12th most in the NCAA this past season.

The great season is not new for Mims as she sits in the top-20 in Cougar history attacks, hitting percentage, solo blocks, block assists, and points with one more year to play.

Mims was chosen as the winner for this award over Maggie Voisin and Darian Stevens who both competed in the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeonchang this past winter. Jill Barta, a small forward for the Gonzaga Bulldogs was also nominated for the award. She joins male winner Mac Bignell who was on the Montana State football team.

A few months ago she was selected to the U.S. Womens Collegiate National Volleyball Team - Europe Tour. Mims and her teammates will start training on July 4th and will compete in the 14th Annual European Global Challenge starting July 10th.
