Our swim meet is named “The Jack Thompson Fall Classic” to honor a man who has been connected with Lakeside swimming for over fifty years. In 1942 he and his wife, Roma, became swimming parents, helping run meets and chaperoning trips. In 1949 he became Manager of Lakeside Swim Club. In 1951 the team had very few swim team members and no money for a coach, and he was asked to assume the responsibility on a part-time basis. Mr. Thompson, better known as “Mr. Lakeside,” remained Manager or Assistant Manager of Lakeside until 1980.

During that time he served on the Kentucky High School Committee from 1955 until 1992. Mr. Thompson managed the Kentucky High School swimming championships for fifteen years and the Jefferson County Region Championships from their beginning until 1989.

In 1976 Mr. Thompson started the Lakeside Masters swim Team and in 1980 was instrumental in forming the Local Masters Swim Committee of United States Masters Swimming.

Mr. Thompson was one of fifteen elected to the Dawahare Kentucky High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame in March of 1990 and one of only five elected to the National American Athletic Union Hall of Fame in September of 1990. Many of his swimming credentials helped him receive these honors.
