More than 100 Marshall County Special Olympians participated at the county’s basketball event Thursday at John Marshall High School.
Students from all Marshall County elementary, middle and high schools hit the hardwood, along with a few graduates, to compete in dribbling, shooting and passing competitions. This sporting event gave the Special Olympics athletes the chance to showcase their skills by participating in fun contests.
Peer tutors from both Cameron High School and John Marshall High School assisted the athletes while shooting hoops. Knights of Pythias members helped with serving lunches and also donated money, from the group’s annual pancake breakfast, to help fund the Fall Games.
The annual Marshall County Special Olympics Track and Field events will take place on the JMHS Soccer Field in Glen Dale on Thursday, April 30, 2020.
