Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart’s Ava Taylor hadn’t attempted a 3-point shot in her two years as a member of the school’s varsity basketball team, but as the current season ended, coach Mark Wax found himself in need of a couple of Wildcats who could represent the school in the IHSA Girls Basketball Class 1A 3-Point Showdown competition. 

Because of scheduling conflicts, two of his better three-point shooters couldn’t participate.
