Taylor is just the 4th runner in the history of the school to win an individual state title. The 16 year old says it was her family and coach that willed her to victory.
Taylor said "I trained so hard and I wanted to win bad enough that I pushed myself when I got to the race."
To celebrate Henry says she went shopping.
