Athletic Director, and former OWU Head baseball Coach Roger Ingles and his wife Jo, an award winning journalist for Ohio Public Radio, were honored Sat April 5 at. Littick Field for the dedication and hard work they have given to OWU athletics. Donations from alumni Mark and Ginny Shipps, Dale and Marilyn Bruce, and Chris McComish and his wife were used in honor of the Ingles’ to replace the backstop’s netting system, add new fencing and a new warning track. The Athletic Director said it was an honor to see his wife honored for her years as an honorary piece of the OWU community.
“I was honored that these donors felt moved enough to make our current athletes experience even better through their generous gifts,” he said. “If I contributed in some small way that is great and the event was special but it really was a recognition of the Ohio Wesleyan spirit that lives within our alumni each and every day.”
