The inaugural class of inductees into the Bryant High School Athletic Hall of Honor were celebrated at ceremonies held at Bryant High School on Saturday night.
The inductees were former athletes Travis Wood and Tina Webb, former coaches Carla Crowder and Joe Treat, former school superintendent Ed Love, along with three teams. The teams are the 1987-89 back-to-back State championship girls basketball squads, the 1980-81 State championship boys basketball team, and the first Bryant High School football team.
The presenting sponsor was Everett Buick GMC. The ceremony was also sponsored by First Security Bank, Saline County Lifestyles, and the Elrod Law Firm. A reception, catered by Gina’s Catering of Bryant, was held in the lobby prior to the induction.
All of the individual inductees were present except for Travis Wood, who was in Chicago preparing for a Major League baseball game. His grandparents, Bobby and Janet Speer, accepted on his behalf.
In addition, several members of each of the honored teams were able to make it to the well-attended event.
