For the fourth year in a row, Ravenscroft's student-led fundraising team for Crucial Catch has been recognized as the top fundraising school in the nation, exceeding their goal of $30,000 by more than $6,000, and once again winning the prestigious Pink Cleat Award.
This is Owen's third year coaching lacrosse at Ravenscroft and his first as head coach. Playing high school lacrosse in the Philadelphia area, Owen led the state of Pennsylvania in scoring for three consecutive years. He was also valedictorian of his graduating class. Owen played varsity lacrosse at the University of Notre Dame for four years, lettering twice. During his time at Notre Dame, the Irish were ranked as high as #2 in the country and made it to the Final Four of the 2001 Division I Men's Lacrosse Championship. Off the field, Owen was a member of the Notre Dame Academic Honors Program for Student-Athletes and the 4.0 Club for Student-Athletes. Owen then attended The University of North Carolina School of Law. During law school, he served as an assistant coach and offensive coordinator for the East Chapel Hill High School varsity boys lacrosse team. The team made it to the state championship game in 2005, and Owen coached several student-athletes who went on to play Division I and Division III lacrosse, including one who made the United States Under-19 National Team. Owen enjoyed a successful legal career and was a partner at Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice (now known as Womble Bond Dickinson) in Raleigh before switching full-time to teaching and coaching in 2017. Along the way, Owen coached youth lacrosse with many local programs, including Rivals, the Triangle Area Lacrosse League, the North Carolina Lacrosse Academy, and Cary Academy. In addition to coaching lacrosse, Owen teaches Humanities 6 and Mock Supreme Court at Ravenscroft.
