Athletics: Jasmine Thomas Honored as Female Student-Athlete Comeback of the Year
Played in 17 games in 2019-20 after missing the 2018-19 season due to injury
LAFAYETTE - After overcoming a knee injury that forced her to miss the 2018-19 season, redshirt senior Jasmine Thomas has been honored with the Park Place Surgical Hospital Female Student-Athlete Comeback of the Year Award.
Thomas, who also had to overcome an injury in the middle of the 2019-20 season, appeared in 17 games for the Ragin' Cajuns, starting in 14.
Her redshirt junior campaign got off to a great start, averaging 5.1 points and 2.3 rebounds in 11-straight starts to open the year. Despite missing the first 13 conference games, she finished the season averaging 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds.
Thomas' most impressive performance came on Nov. 25 when the Vivian, Louisiana, native poured in 13 points and hauled down eight rebounds in 26 minutes at Lamar, her first double-digit scoring effort since producing 10 points against Troy on Feb. 22, 2018.
She came back to have another strong performance against UTA on March 5, scoring eight points and pulling in six rebounds. At the end of the year, Thomas played crucial minutes in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, including a nine-rebound effort in the quarterfinals against Little Rock.
In three seasons with the program, Thomas has averaged 7.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 25.6 minutes per contest. In that time span, she appeared in 71 games, making 56 starts.
About Park Place Surgical Hospital
Park Place Surgical Hospital was established in 1999 by a group of local surgeons who collaborated to create a surgical hospital that would serve the needs of Lafayette and all of Acadiana. In 2006, Park Place partnered with Our Lady of Lourdes in order to deliver the best care possible to its patients.
Originally located in Lafayette's oil center, Park Place eventually outgrew this location and moved to its current location on Ambassador Caffery on the campus of Our Lady of Lourdes. Although Park Place has experienced tremendous growth over the years, it still delivers the same personal care that the people of Acadiana deserve. As a premier surgical hospital, it is our mission to provide patients with cost-effective, less invasive, quality healthcare that promotes individual attention to the patient's needs.
