     NEW ORLEANS — Taylor Reuther, a three-time All-State performer for St. Mary's Dominican High School in New Orleans, signed a women's volleyball scholarship Wednesday with Xavier University of Louisiana.
     Reuther is the Gold Nuggets' first signee of 2011.
     "Taylor Reuther is such a huge addition to our program," XU Coach Al'lisa Hale said. "She has a great attitude, displays tremendous leadership and is a really knowledgeable player."
     Reuther is a 5-foot-7 outside hitter and libero from suburban Metairie. She led Dominican in 2010 to second place in the Division I state playoffs and the school's first berth in the finals since 2003. Reuther recorded 444 kills, 303 digs, 85 aces and 58 blocks as a senior and had four-year totals of 1,517 kills, 1,438 digs, 366 aces and 98

blocks. She was District 7-I Co-Player of the Year, All-Metro and the Clarion Herald's Player of the Year.
     An honor-roll student multiple times at Dominican, Reuther scored a composite 28 on the ACT and will be a pre-pharmacy major at Xavier.
     "I chose Xavier because it has a really good pharmacy program, and I like Coach Hale a lot," Reuther said.
