VESTAL, N.Y.-- Former Binghamton
men's soccer standout Graham Munro, who was selected by
the Baltimore Blast in the third round of the Major Indoor Soccer
League (MISL) college draft last March, has reported to preseason
training camp in his attempt to win a spot on the team. Munro

The Baltimore Blast is the
defending MISL champion and will open up its season on Nov. 7

overall league title (1984, 2003 and 2004 were the other championship
seasons). The MISL does not have a set date for its teams to

In the four years Munro was with the program, Binghamton won

of the 2003 NCAA Tournament and was also nationally ranked by
both the NSCAA and College Soccer News the past two seasons.
Following his senior season, Munro was named third-team All-America
