Munday tops among Lady Ads who step up big at Bradley


Led by junior post Natalie Munday and key supporting efforts that included a vital freshman contribution, the FHS Lady Admirals won two of three games among a 12-team field at the Bradley Central Invitational last week in Cleveland.

Entering the week with a 4-2 record, Farragut got both of its Bradley tourney wins on the same day — Saturday.


The Lady Admirals opened with a 62-55 win over Antioch High of Nashville Saturday morning, then had enough stamina to play one of its best games of the season Saturday night against a powerful Alabama program.

As for Munday, “she played really well over the weekend,” FHS head coach Mike Driver said about his All-tournament selection. “She had a tremendous game against Athens, Ala. (a 70-44 win Saturday evening). Natalie had 23 (points) in that game, and 17 rebounds. She was just a warrior in there. She was driving to the hole, shooting the three, she was rebounding.”

Battling the defending 4-A state runner-up in Alabama (five classifications) “this one was right up there with Cleveland as one of our best games of the year,” Driver said. “We played a good first half, but in the second half we played great offense and great defense.”

Munday led with 16 points and eight rebounds, but it was Beth Raby’s huge fourth quarter that made the difference.

“Beth had a couple of real big steals and breakaway layups in the fourth quarter,” Driver said. “Her defense in the fourth quarter really helped us. It was a really tight game going to the fourth quarter.” Raby had 11 of her 14 points in the final eight minutes.

Kiah Simmons, FHS freshman post, scored 10 huge points. “We started her, we put her in there to try to battle with some of their big girls in the paint,” Driver said. “She had three steals … and went five of seven from the field.”

Guard Ashley Tipton had a well-rounded game, scoring 13 points to go with seven assists and six rebounds.

“We just couldn’t hit the open shot,” Driver said of his team’s Bradley tourney loss on Friday.

Munday led FHS with 14 points and eight rebounds.

POWELL 49 FHS 43

Munday led in scoring with 13, followed by Catelyn Dake’s 10.

As for Dake, a sophomore wing, “she had ten rebounds too,” Driver said. “She did a good job for us.”
