Let the games begin!

Beginning in January, fifteen men and women have been tirelessly training for the 2015 season of Special Olympics Basketball. Led by Coach Nicole Venen, Recreation Coordinator, and assistant coaches Mark Carden and David Wright, these athletes have worked incredibly hard at practice twice a week.
On March 7th, they competed in the Sectional Qualifying tournament at Lorain County Community College. Everyone had a successful heat, showing off their dribbling, shooting, and target passing skills.

With one competition out of the way, everyone continued to practice each week in preparation for State! On March 27th, the team left for Claymont High School in Uhrichsville. Starting the competition weekend out with an overnight trip, the team spent the night in a hotel. After a complimentary breakfast, they were on their way to the competition! Our athletes did a wonderful job at the state tournament.
