“Tae is very deserving of her postseason honor,” Pearl River Coach and Athletics Director Scotty Fletcher said. “I know I sound like a broken record when I say she deserves every accomplishment and success that comes her way but it’s true. Tae is a proven winner who approaches every day with the opportunity to get better. 

“It’s truly an honor to coach her and I am elated she is returning to  wear that maroon and gold across her chest next year. She is a great example of what we want our student athletes to embody at Pearl River.”

Burrage proved to be a valuable leader for PRCC’s women’s program all season. Although Burrage only played in eight games, she ended up hitting double figures in scoring six times with a career-high 20 points coming in at JC. 

The sophomore ultimately led PRCC in scoring, averaging 13.1 points per game. She also averaged 3.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.4 steals.
