Special Olympics Teams Hard at Work

Special Olympics Basketball and Bowling teams have been hard at work practicing for their upcoming Tournaments.  Brandon Byrd and Jeremiah Nickerson are new to the Special Olympics program and they are doing a wonderful job teaching the students the ins and outs of basketball.  The basketball team has a scrimmage with the Barnstable Intermediate School on Monday the 30th.  There they will be able to practice their skills to help us do well at our basketball tournament in Bridgewater on Feb 4th. 

Frannie Quirk is not new to the Special Olympics program but she is new to coaching.  She is now the Special Olympics Bowling head coach and Neil Irving has stepped up to be the Assistant Coach.  Together they bring great enthusiasm to the bowling practice! The students are enjoying themselves immensely, and are very excited for their upcoming Tournament on January 29th.  Teams from all over the south coast will be competing at Ryans Family Amusements in Yarmouth.

Good Luck to all of our Olympians! And Thanks to the coaches that have volunteered to participate in the winter sports season!  We couldn’t have done this without these special people!
