We had three athletes that wanted to participate in basketball, but were unable to play on a basketball team, so they worked at passing the ball, dribbling the ball and shooting baskets. They competed in Mesa at the Skills Competition and are looking forward to State competition on March 28 in Surprise, Ariz.
In the meantime pictured left to right is Jared Johnson (Gold), Bertina Pratt (Silver) and front, Ashley Bratton (Bronze) showing off their medals from the Area competition. We are learning how to win, lose and enjoy playing and making new friends that don’t live in our area.
Many thanks to all who support Special Olympics Arizona and especially the Globe, Miami and San Carlos group and our coaches who work faithfully with our athletes.
