Lindsey Thompson’s last season with the Floyd County High School Lady Buffaloes baksetball team is over. Results from an MRI show she has a torn ligament and torn menicus in the knee she injured last summer and she will undergo surgery for the second time in March. She played with those torn muscles Monday night in the team’s win over George Wythe.
Thompson (above), who scored more than 1,000 points during her high school years, is scheduled to play ball for the UNC Asheville next season and watched from the bench Thursday night as her team rallied and beat Grayson County 71-37 in the regional semi-finals in Buchanan.
"It’s a very big disappointment," she told The Roanoke Times.
I’ve watched Lindsey (who is not a relative) play many times during her high school career and have hundreds of photographs of the young star, who is Three Rivers District Player of the Year. The photo above is from last year’s state basketball tournament in Richmond.
