El Paso native Evwella Munn, a 1976 Jefferson High School graduate, who once
scored 79 points in a high school girls’ basketball game in El Paso, Texas which still
stands as the most ever by a female or male basketball player was recently named as
a Class of 2023 El Paso Athletic Hall of Fame inductee.
Ms. Munn played at the University of Texas from 1978 -1980 for legendary Womens
Basketball Coach Jody Conradt after a decorated career as a Junior College All-
American at Temple Junior College.
Jody Conradt was the second woman inducted into the James Naismith Memorial
Basketball Hall of Fame, the most prestigious Hall of Fame in the world and the
same Hall where beloved UTEP Men’s Basketball Coach Don Haskins also resides.
Ms. Conradt as a grand gesture was in El Paso, Texas
at the Marriott Hotel. 1600 Airway Blvd. to congratulate Ms. Munn.
This is a terrific gesture by Ms. Conradt, one of the top coaches, not only in womens
basketball history but in the entire history of basketball. Just this year the University
Interscholastic League (U.I.L.) created an award named after Jody Conradt to
recognize the top Administrator in High School Sports in the State of Texas. Below
is a snapshot of some of Jody Conradt achievements.
