CHS Alum Named to 2006 Conference USA All-Tournament Team

Catholic High School alum and junior shortstop for University of Memphis, Michael Murray, has been named to the 2006 Conference USA All-Tournament Team.

Murray, who hit .286 in the regular season, exploded in the eight-team postseason field and finished the week with a team-leading .538 (7-for13) tournament average. In addition, he slugged .692 with four RBI, four runs scored and three walks. He was equally as impressive in the field, posting 16 assists and six putouts. The highlight of Murray’s week came in the 7-4 semifinal loss to No. 1 Rice when he lined a two-out, bases loaded triple to rightfield to cut the Owls lead to 5-4. Murray went 2-for-4 with three RBI versus the top-ranked Owls and 3-for-4 in the Tigers’ 13-2 win over UAB.
