Besides being a golfer, Michael Thompson was an Eagle Scout and played soccer at Rincon/University High School. "We lost in the state playoffs and it was brutal. It still stings," said Thompson, 27, whose mom, Beth, teaches high school English at Sabino.
Rincon/University's Brianna Leverenz, younger sister of Olympic medalist Caitlin Leverenz, finished in the top three in two events at state last year as a freshman. "I have to feel confident in what I do and not compare myself to her," Brianna says.
