A couple of players from Dana Altman teams in the 1980’s and a Palmyra standout comprise the next class of inductees into the MACC Greyhound and Lady Greyhound Hall of Fame. Bernard Day, Charles Bledsoe and Carrie Ragar McKinney will be honored at the awards banquet on April 14th.
Bernard Day was an All-Region selection both years in Moberly. The 1984-85 Hounds finished 3rd in the country and Day led the team in rebounding at 7.6 and averaged 11.5 points per game. He was an Honorable Mention All-American and went on to finish his collegiate career at Nebraska where he is still the highest
scoring junior college transfer in school history.
The importance of Charles Bledsoe was evident in the games he didn’t play in the 1985-86 season. The Greyhounds were the number one team in the country when Bledsoe broke his hand and missed the last 11 games. He was still an Honorable Mention All-American for a team that finished 6th in the country and Bledsoe went on to follow coach Altman to Kansas State.
After an All-State career at Palmyra, Carrie Ragar McKinney came to Moberly and played from 1993-95. Her sophomore season, she averaged a double-double
with 23.7 points and 11.6 rebounds and was named a 2nd Team All-American. She also went on to play at Kansas State.
We will have more with the MACC Hall of Fame inductees as we get closer to the banquet on April 14th.
