The Gregory School senior standout Taylor Thompson announced her commitment to play for Concordia University on Sunday afternoon. Thompson is averaging over 21 points a game for the Hawks and is leading the team to the 1A semifinals to be played on Friday.
“I chose Concordia because I knew it was somewhere that I could continue with a high level of education,” Thompson said. “I knew I would also be able to play the sport I love most.”
Thompson is approaching 1,300 career points even though she missed her sophomore season due to lack of players in the program. Thompson played on the boy’s team in 2014-15.
