The Murray State Women’s Golf Team won their ninth Ohio Valley Conference Championship Wednesday, April 23 with a final round 310. Freshman Sydney Trimble was named to the OVC All-Tournament Team. With the victory, Murray State earned the OVC's automatic bid into the NCAA Championship. The win continues a streak of each class in the Racer Women’s Golf program winning at least one OVC championship that began when MSU coach Velvet Milkman started the program 21 years ago.
With the close of the year’s major-league baseball season, and as ball fields lie dormant for a short winter hiatus, one local baseball fan isn’t quite done.
Bill Rayburn and his replica 1800s bat company will continue to fill orders and produce artisan baseball bats that represent different periods of America’s favorite pastime. Rayburn, in his little workshop west of Murray makes a little piece of baseball history every day.
Rayburn really likes baseball, and he has ever since he was a kid.
