About the Book

From the first baseball game in the 1870s until the last issue of the Keowee Courier was published on March 27, 2019, the Courier faithfully reported sports events in Oconee County on a weekly basis. This book, the 11th in the "Looking Back - A Journey Through the Pages of the Keowee Courier" series, contains some of the sports highlights over the decades. There are eight sections of the book: (1) Baseball, (2) Track and Field, (3) Town-to-Town Relay Races, (4) Basketball, (5) Football, (6) High School Sports Expand, (7) Various Other Sports, and (8) School Fair and Field Days. The book covers sports from throughout the county until about 1920. After 1920, the coverage is primarily about sports in Walhalla and surrounding areas.
