The Piedmont College Letter Club inducted two new members to its Sports Hall of Fame during Alumni Weekend April 4-6. This year's class includes Bryan Getty ('04) of Tiger in tennis and Meredith Ray ('07) of Memphis, Tenn., in softball.
Getty, who earned a BA degree in business, was a member of the tennis team that won the Great South Athletic Conference championship three years in a row from 2001-2003. He was the GSAC Player of the Year in 2001 and an All-Conference player in both singles and doubles for three years. He was also a three-time member of the GSAC All-Academic Team. Bryan now works in the Special Education department at Rabun County Middle School and is also the assistant tennis coach for the Rabun County High School boys and girls tennis teams.
Meredith Ray earned a BS degree in mathematics at Piedmont and a master's degree in public health from the University of Georgia. She is currently a candidate for a PhD in biostatistics at the University of South Carolina, scheduled to graduate in August 2014.
During her four years at Piedmont, Ray was named to the GSAC All-Conference Team four times and was twice named GSAC Pitcher of the Year. In 2006, she held the 14th spot for wins among NCAA D-III schools and was ranked 29th in the nation for lowest earned run average (ERA). That year Ray was also named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association D-III Louisville Slugger All-Atlantic Region Second Team. In the classroom, Ray was a GSAC All-Conference Scholar, a U.S. Achievement Academy All-American Scholar, and a member of the Kappa Mu Epsilon and chi Alpha Sigma honor societies.
