LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Centenary’s Taylor Thompson was named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week for her efforts this week on the links for the Ladies.

Thompson earned a 14th place finish in the Abilene Intercollegiate this week after shooting a 163 (+22) to lead the Centenary Ladies to a fifth place tie.

The Baton Rouge, La., sophomore shot an 83 through the first 18 holes to put herself in a tie for 15th place with teammate Jamie Wright, but improved to an 80 in the second round. Thompson’s second round score is her second lowest round of the season, with the only better round being at the Birmingham Southern Tournament as a 77.

Thompson becomes the second women’s golfer to receive the accolade from the conference office and the third overall winner this season as Wright has claimed two of the weekly honors on the campaign.
