These young men from Theodore Jones Elementary School qualified to compete at state based on their scores from the Area 17 bowling tournament in November. At the State Tournament, they placed first in Male Doubles Ages 8-12 and 3rd place in Ramp Bowling Ages 8-12.
Their teacher/coach, Amy Hubbard, says it is a wonderful experience for these kids.
"Special Olympics provides these students and their parents with life changing and rewarding experiences. The athletes' oath says it all: "Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt." As a coach, I'm thankful for the opportunity to learn from these remarkable athletes!"
The next event for these athletes will be Special Olympics Track and Field Tournament in April, which will be held at Conway High School.
