Richmond, Hoke Hold Special Event

Recently two North Carolina High School Athletic Association member schools collaborated on a unique athletic event.

Hoke County High School and Richmond Senior High School combined to put together a series of kickball games. Gary Brigman, athletic director at Hoke, and athletic director Kevin Mabe of Richmond came up with the idea to have the Exceptional Children’s students from each school compete in kickball. 

The first set of games was played at Richmond Senior, with Richmond to travel to Hoke County High School at a later date. Brigman and Mabe noted that they hope other schools will participate in this activity, that all the participants really enjoyed the event and the sportsmanship exhibited was outstanding.

Others involved with putting this event together included the Hoke County Exceptional Children Department, the Hoke County athletic department, the Richmond Senior athletic department, and the Richmond County Exceptional Children Department.

Congratulations to these two schools for hosting such a meaningful event for all involved, and we appreciate their providing the information for this story.
