Munday, Carroll shining bright in major college ball
Former FHS post named OVC rookie of the year; ex-BHS star living up to 3rd-team All-American projections with bat


Alex Munday adjusted to college basketball life rather quickly it seems.

The 6-foot freshman, a former star post at Farragut High School, was named Ohio Valley Conference Rookie of the Year for the 2003-04 season at Samford University in Birmingham, Ala.


Meanwhile, former Bearden High School star shortstop Brett Carroll (Class of 2001) is trying his best to live up to his prestigious preseason billing as a third-team All-American third baseman with the Middle Tennessee State University Blue Raiders in Murfreesboro.

With a .317 batting average through 31 games (19-12 MTSU record), the 6-foot-1, 184-pound junior is either first or second on his team in six offensive categories, and had a team-leading 13 doubles.

Carroll’s .540 slugging percentage, 40 hits, 21 RBIs, 24 runs scored and 68 total bases all ranked second on the Blue Raider team.

Among his accomplishments so far in 2004, Carroll has compiled three separate eight-game hitting streaks.

Despite her team’s dismal 10-17 overall record — 3-13 in OVC games — Munday ended the season as the Lady Bulldogs’ leader in points per game (14.2) and rebounds per game (5.6).

Labeled as “very determined” by Samford head coach Mike Morris, this 19-year-old former Lady Admiral was a six-time honoree as OVC Rookie of the Week.

In her very first college game against Alcorn State, Munday shook off any possible jitters and/or culture shock and scored 14 points while yanking down 11 rebounds.
