MARSHFIELD – Marshfield High School has announced that Taylor Varsho will be the next girls basketball coach for the Marshfield Tigers.
Varsho is well known in Central Wisconsin from her playing days at Marshfield High School where she garnered Wisconsin Valley Conference and Women’s Basketball Coaches Association recognition during her career. She is the school’s All-Time Leading Scorer for both season (483) and career (1370) and holds ten other school records.
Taylor moved into the collegiate scene and attended Colorado State University, before transferring to the University of Sioux Falls (USF) where she was a three-year starter for the Cougars. She earned many awards in the 2015-16 season including NSIC Player of the Year and Conference Tournament MVP. She was team captain all three seasons at USF and helped lead her team to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history during the 2015-16 season.
“Coach Varsho brings knowledge and desire to teach the game of basketball to the Tiger basketball program,” said Marshfield Athletic Director Nathan DeLany. “Taylor’s energy and passion to teach the fundamentals and work in collaboration with our youth programs will help develop and mentor girls and young ladies into better players, students, and people.”
Varsho replaces her high school coach, Heidi Michaelis, who resigned following the 2017-18 season. Michaelis had coached the Tigers for 17 seasons and achieved 300 wins in her career.
Taylor will teach in the Special Education department at Marshfield High School after one year at Eau Claire Memorial High School, where she served in the same role, as well as a Varsity assistant for the boys basketball program. She also coached softball at Altoona High School.
