WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) — Funeral services have been scheduled for a south-central Kansas teenager who died last week after collapsing during cheerleading practice.
The funeral for 15-year-old Taylor Murphy will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at First Christian Church in Winfield.
Taylor was a sophomore at Winfield High School, where she became short of breath and collapsed during cheerleading practice last Thursday. She died later at a hospital in Winfield.
Her stepfather says the cause of death has not been released. He described her as a healthy teen whose activities also included volleyball and choir.
Winfield High School principal Trenton Creeden said Taylor was a bright, popular student who was well-liked by students and staff.
