Web Site Dedication

Bill Hinegardner

Back in 1960, a young man was graduating from Meadow Bridge High School in West Virginia who had never heard of the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference. After graduating from Concord College, he matriculated to Marshall County to take a math job at Moundsville High School. And as they say, the rest is history.

Coaching wrestling and football, basketball and baseball, Bill Hinegardner was elevated to head wrestling coach at the newly formed John Marshall High School and spent the rest of his career building champions and championship teams. To list his credits, accomplishments, and honors would fill this website. While his heart was with the Monarchs, Hiney was quick to step into the OVAC and help out wherever he was needed.

Whether helping with the wrestling tournament, boosters, baseball championship, or scholarship selection committee, when you called on Bill Hinegardner, he was there, ready to work and serve. Something he has done for 44 years.

For his outstanding service and dedication, the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference is proud to dedicate this year’s website to him. Thanks for everything Bill.
