    A chance encounter with an old HCHS baseball jersey led to a special presentation at the Henry County Wildcats’ baseball banquet Friday night.

    According to Shanda Archer, whose son Ryan plays on the team, Lisa Huckaby came across the jersey of Robbie Bryant in a closet at the high school.

    Bryant played baseball for the Wildcats in the 1980s and was known for his hitting prowess and love of the game. Bryant died in an automobile accident at the end of his senior season in 1986.

    The Henry County High School softball program held an alumni game as a fundraiser Saturday with 16 former Lady Cats participating. The home team scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to win the game 11-10. More importantly, everyone had a great time and nobody got hurt.

    HCHS Coach Zack Mings said that plans are in the works to hold the game again next year and possibly make it a Warrior-Lady Cats alumni game.

    He hopes that with more notice, the game will grow next year.
