Thompson Signs Swimming Scholarship with Lindsey Wilson College

In the 2013 Region 1 Finals, Thompson was 4th in the 50 yard freestyle with a time of 22.79. He was fifth in the 100 yard freestyle with a time of 49.88. At the 2013 state finals, Thompson was 13th in the 50 yard freestyle with a time of 22.36. He was 14th in the 100 yard freestyle with a time of 49.33.

Thompson is president of the Tilghman Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), and is regional treasurer for FBLA. He is a member of the Beta Club and National Honor Society.

"Taylor is a hard worker with some goals in mind about what he wants to do not just with swimming, but with academics and vocation," said PTHS swim coach Patty Thompson. "I think Lindsey Wilson is a great fit for him. His times are competitive with swimmers already on the team, so I believe he's going to go in next year and score points for the team. He's going to make a difference."

"I'm excited to have the opportunity to swim for Lindsey Wilson," said Taylor. "The smaller school environment there makes it feel more like home. I feel like I'll fit in there really well."

Taylor will compete one more time as a Tornado in the Region 1 meet at Owensboro February 13-14 and the KHSAA state meet at the University of Louisville February 27-28.
