Highly-decorated Dutchtown volleyball star Kristen Thompson officially signed with Tulane last week.

Thompson has been one of the best players in the parish over the last few years. In her sophomore season, she was named the district’s Offensive MVP.

Last year, she was named the league’s overall MVP as she finished with 473 kills, 392 assists and 87 blocks. She was also a first-team All-Metro selection.

In 2016, Thompson helped lead the Lady Griffins to a 24-win season and a berth in the playoffs.
