A pair of conference championships along with a few individual awards makes for a pretty successful collegiate career. Tricia Thompson (Flowers) accomplished that and more while on the diamond at GSW.
As a freshman, Tricia was named second team All-Region as a catcher and placed on the All-Freshman Conference Team while playing for the late Ann Planas.
Tricia started 132 games while at Southwestern and finished with a .301 career batting average, 19 doubles, six home runs and 64 runs batted in. She led the Lady Hurricanes in batting in 2003 with a .341 average while belting out a team-high four triples. In 2001, her 10 doubles was also a team high.
The Lady Hurricanes won conference titles in 2001 and 2002.
Tricia was a leader in the classroom as well, as she was a recipient of the Wheatley Academic Leadership Scholarship.
Currently, Tricia is a Wellness and Cardiac Rehabilitation Manager at St. Francis Hospital in Columbus, GA. She has been at St. Francis for 6 years and LOVES her job!
Tricia has retired from catching fast pitch and now plays co-ed slow pitch in her church league. In addition, she coaches her daughter's little league softball team (6-9 years old), leads the children's choir at her church, teaches 4 and 5 year old Sunday School, and also serves as an AWANA Leader to elementary students at her church.
