The Mount Airy High School baseball team outlasted a comeback attempt by their elders in the inaugural alumni game Saturday.
The high schoolers jumped out to a 7-1 lead early. But the act of swinging the bat soon came back for the alumni team, which rallied to score four times late in the game.
It wasnt enough, however, and the high school squad won, 7-5.
The alumni squad was represented by Tim Turney, Jake Joyce, Drew George, Zack Slate, Travis Sizemore, Robert Hodges, Colt Boyd, Tony Sadler, Kevin Wyrick, Rob Livengood and Levi Goins.
Serving as a fundraiser for the Foothills Food Bank, over 200 food items were collected instead of an admission price.
