Neely Taylor, University of Memphis Softball

Memphis, TN – (April 16, 2024) — ZIPS Car Wash ( released its final Season 2 Memphis episode of “Car Wash Convos™” today featuring Neely Taylor, University of Memphis outfielder for the Tigers Softball team.  Neely rides shotgun to host, Sydney Neely, Memphis Tigers In-Arena Host, and hits a home run as she shares who got her softball career started, what time she needs to get to bed, no exceptions, and more in this entertaining episode filmed during a car wash at ZIPS in Memphis.

"I had a great time participating in Car Wash Convos and feel honored to be a part of such a unique series that highlights student-athletes across the country,” said Neely Taylor.

In the ’23 season, Neely appeared in 45 games, making 39 starts and was named to the 2023 AAC All-Rookie Team and the 2022-23 AAC All-Academic Team.

“Neely’s interview is very authentic – you’ll notice she even refuses to discuss a certain topic – and that’s what we’ve enjoyed most about producing and sharing out our episodes in Season 2 of Car Wash Convos,” said Rebecca Latacz, Chief Marketing Officer, ZIPS Car Wash. “We’re proud to finish strong with our Memphis episodes by highlighting Neely in a very natural way that gives fans a glimpse into her off the field personality,” she added.

The ZIPS Season 2 Roster was secured through a collaboration between Learfield – the media and technology company powering college sports and the universities’ athletics multimedia rights holder – and NIL marketplace leader Opendorse. Season 1 resulted in more than 4 million impressions and over 2 million video views. Season 2 includes 22 episodes, all airing on ZIPS YouTube channel and other social media platforms.
