Four from Jackson County to enter the Ohio Valley Sports Hall of Fame

While things aren’t quite back to normal for the Mid-Ohio Valley Sports Hall of Fame, thanks to COVID-19, they’re getting closer.

On Saturday, June 11, at the Grand Pointe Convention and Reception Center in Vienna, two chapters will be devoted to getting things back on track.

A group of 12 classes will make up both the 2021 and 2022 classes.

This will be the first Mid-Ohio Valley event in its usual mid-June venue since the 2019 banquet.

After two consecutive semesters of no-submission/honor ceremonies, the Class of 2020 was finally recognized last November.

Of the 12 new members appointed, four are from Jackson County.

Former Ravenswood High athletes Kim Creel and Bernie Reese will be honored, along with one-time Ripley stars Alanna Sheets and Mitch Smith.

The Mid-Ohio Valley Sports Hall of Fame was formed in 1998. The idea came from the late Bob Zedd, a legend in the sporting goods trade.

The Hall of Fame honors the athletes, coaches, officials, administrators, and media since then who have distinguished and contributed significantly to sports in Mid-Ohio Valley.
