About Taylor: 
Taylor Hansen is 17 years old and an 11th grader at Mankato East High School in Mankato, MN.  She became interested in pool at the age of 9 as she was intrigued by her father’s stories of how he did in league pool during the week. Her parents bought her and her brother a 15-in-one game table to see how they took to the game. Fundamentals were taught on this 4’ x 2’ table until her dad was able to complete construction on a game room which was set up with a 9 foot Brunswick and a 7 foot Valley bar box table.  At the end of her first year, she competed in her first tournament at the VNEA Junior Nationals and finished in 4th place in the 9-13 division. She has since racked up 7 National Titles. She is the 3 time defending VNEA Junior National Singles Champion, defending Junior National Major Team Champion, has 1 VNEA Speed Pool Championship, won the 2013 BCA Women’s Leisure Division, and just recently was crowned the 2015 USBTC Women’s 10 ball Champion.  Taylor also took 2nd place in the 2013 BCA Advanced Scotch Doubles.

While her current future plans include going to college to be a Pediatrician, she also plans to work hard on her game to see where it can take her.

Quote from Taylor about OB:
“I am super excited to be playing with the OB line of equipment. Their high quality workmanship which goes into every one of their cues should allow me to be much more consistent.”

Goals in pool:
My main goal is just to be the best I can be.  I will be playing in the 2015 VNEA Junior Nationals again this year to try and make it 4 in a row in singles and to defend in the majors team event, but will be taking the 2016 Junior VNEA off as I travel to Spain for school. I also plan to continue playing the BCA Nationals, USBTC, and would like to play at the Chinook Winds Tournament and possibly qualify to play a few WPBA events, even though I have no desire to become a future Professional.
