Cole earns elite McDonald's All-American status

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - L.C. Bird senior basketball player Taja Cole has been selected as a 2015 McDonald's All-American, one of just 24 girls players to earn the distinction nationwide.

Cole, a Louisville commit and five star recruit, is averaging 21 points per game for the Skyhawks this season, helping Bird to a 13-4 record.

The Skyhawk guard will be joined on the East squad by two of her future Louisville teammates. Cole says she's honored by the selection and that it's something she's dreamed of since she was little.

The McDonald's All-American game tips off on April 1 in Chicago.
