A Tennessee Olive Garden covered the $800 bill Friday for the track team from a Kentucky high school where a deadly shooting took place in January.


The Marshall County Kentucky High School was in town for a competition and stopped at the Olive Garden for dinner.


A manager noticed the team and called his boss in Atlanta, who OK’d waiving the $789.26 bill.


"They were super," manager Bill Funderburk, said "They were just so appreciative. Some of the greatest kids you ever met. They all were giving me handshakes and high-fives and hugs. That gave us joy to see them having fun."


Two of the team’s athletes were injured in the January 23rd shooting. One of the victims is back and competing on the team.
