Bell City Senior Plays Through Cancer Treatments
By: Wendy Ray
The Bell City boys basketball team is headed to state. T
he Cubs have had a lot of success, they've won two Class-1 state titles over the past three seasons. Tuesday
afternoon, the Bell City student body got teammates pumped up to play the Jefferson Eagles Thursday morning. Team members are heading up to Columbia, where they hope for a win that will give them back to back state titles.
Of course teams have to deal with a lot of injuries throughout the season, but one member of the Bell City team has a much bigger health concern, a diagnosis of cancer. A.J. Henry was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease in January, but that hasn't stopped him from being an active part of the Bell City team. A.J. has given his team some inspiration to win.
