Thompson commits to run at Belmont-Abbey

Polk County senior Tori Thompson has verbally committed to run cross country and track and field at Belmont-Abbey.

Thompson is expected to soon sign a national letter-of-intent to join the Crusaders athletic program.

A multi-sport athlete throughout her Polk County career, Thompson earned all-conference honors last fall for Polk County’s cross country program, finishing seventh at the Mountain Foothills 7 Conference meet. She was part of the Wolverines’ state qualifying team in 2019.

Thompson reached the 1A state outdoor track and field championships last spring, placing eighth in the pole vault. She is part of the Wolverines’ 4×400-meter relay team that is the top seed entering Friday’s 2A/1A indoor state track and field championships.
