Brookland-Cayce Athletic Hall of Fame adds 5 new members Friday night
The night was filled with emotion for some- remembering such good times in their lives. Some hugged- wiping away tears, as they came face-to-face and realized the impact their mentors have made on them.
Five new members of the Brookland-Cayce High School Athletic Hall of Fame were inducted Friday night. The new members were introduced during half-time of the Brookland-Cayce vs. Strom Thurmond football game at Bearcat Stadium in Cayce. The Bearcats won the game, 28-6.
