RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Taja Cole walked into a McDonald’s on Iron Bridge Road in Chester and couldn’t believe what she saw: a surprise party in her honor attended by her friends, teammates, and family.
She teared up. That’s saying something for an intense, focused, ruthless competitor who is so good she’s the first Skyhawk to play in (and win!) a McDonald’s All American Game. She’s headed to Louisville on a full athletic scholarship.
She said with events like today, it will be tough to leave her home town.
