VALDOSTA -- Three student-athletes from the 1990s will be among the four inducted into the Valdosta State Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday.

The four -- football's Lance Funderburk, tennis' Daryl Greenan, women's basketball's Bridgett Moore and baseball's Bryan Shover -- will be inducted at a noon luncheon Saturday at the University Center. The four bring the hall membership to 38 (complete list, page 4B).

n Funderburk becomes the fifth football player to be inducted. He's one of top three Blazer quarterbacks all-time, throwing for 8,192 yards and 67 touchdowns as a two-year starter in 1995 and 1996. He was a two-time all-Gulf South selection and was an all-America and Gulf South offensive player of the year in 1996, leading the Blazers to their first Gulf South title.

Funderburk finished second in the 1996 Harlon Hill Trophy balloting. He won the Commissioner's Trophy in 1997, awarded annually to the Gulf South's most outstanding student-athlete.

n Greenan is the second men's tennis player to be inducted. He played No. 1 singles and doubles from 1992-95, earning all-Gulf South honors three times and twice winning all-America. In his senior season, he lead Valdosta State to a top five national ranking and finished second in the national tournament in doubles.

He was named Gulf South Freshman of the Year and Player of the Year in 1992 after winning the league's singles title.

n Moore becomes the ninth women's basketball player or coach to be inducted. A three-year starter and all-Gulf South selection, she is the 10th all-time scorer in VSU history with 1,445 career points. Her teams went 85-28 from 1983-87.

The Berrien County native continues to hold school records for best free throw percentage in a season (87.8 percent) and for a career (83.5). A perennial Dean's List student, she is one of only three women to be two-time recipients of the Gulf South's Commissioner's Trophy,

n Shover is the 10th baseball player or coach to be inducted, the most among any of the Valdosta State programs. He was a four-year starter from 1992-95, winning all-conference honors twice along with an all-America selection. His wins (31) and strikeouts (365 in 347 innings) are still school records.

In his senior season, VSU won Gulf South and region championships, finishing third at the Division II baseball championship.
