Honors College senior and exercise science major Kyra Thompson has spent plenty of time at the beach in her four years at the College of Charleston. But not in the way that most students do.
Thompson is a member of the College’s NCAA beach volleyball program. Last spring, both Thompson and the program reached new heights. The team finished the season with a program-high 22 wins and made its first postseason run as members of the Atlantic Sun Conference.
Thompson, meanwhile, combined with teammate Gabi Bailey to set a new single-season record for wins by a pair with 23. The two concluded the season with a 23–4 mark, which translates into an impressive .852 winning percentage. In addition, Thompson was named to the 2022 Atlantic Sun All Academic Team.
