The University of Memphis fastpitch softball program recently signed Hampton’s E’Mya Munford to a letter of intent.

Munford, a corner infielder, was an all-state honoree the past two years, and was selected to this year’s Georgia Dugout Club Fastpitch All-State Game. She holds the school record for home runs in a season with 10 and maintains a 4.0 GPA.

“E’Mya is a power hitter to the core,” Memphis head coach Natalie Poole said. “She stood out from the first time I saw her play, and continues to impress me each time I watch her. She also moves well defensively and will work in more than one position for us. She has been the energy provider for teams she has played on. She has a fun spirit and is a great teammate.”

“I can’t wait for the Furman community to get to know Jada,” Furman head coach Jackie Carson said. “Jada is not only a talented basketball player, but also has an amazing spirit. Again, she will give our interior even more size and presence. She is able to stretch the floor and drive against bigger opponents. She plays hard and is a great addition to our program.”
