Peyton Grace Thompson, Senior at Laurel Christian High School, was selected as a South Central Sports Medicine Scholar Athlete. Peyton Grace is a swimmer and cross-country runner at LCS. Her plans after graduation are to attend college to pursue a degree in healthcare. When Peyton Grace is not participating in sports, she enjoys baking, kayaking and spending time with loved ones.
“My goal for the 2019 is to win a state championship in 100m freestyle and 50m fly for swimming and to cut time off my 5K for cross-country,” said Peyton Grace. “If I could give younger athletes advice, I would remind them to be consistent with practice and to set small attainable goals for yourself.” When asked who has influenced her to strive for excellence, she responded, “my mom. She is optimistic and motivates me to do my best.”
