Thomas signs with Memphis


Shelby County senior Madison Thomas has never been one to back down from a challenge and she did not change that in her choice of a college.

Thomas, the reigning Kentucky State High School golf champion, signed last week to play at the University of Memphis.

“It will be a lot different going to a big city from Shelby County,” Thomas said. “It will be good for me. I will be able to get out of my comfort zone.  I think it will be good for me.”
