Special Olympics Conquer Their First Game!

April 3, 2017 | Amiya Tucker

Crestview High’s Key Club is associated with the Special Olympics. They are the only team in the county that played unified, that is, the team included people with and without  disabilities.

There are different sports within the Special Olympics that a team can choose from. This year, Crestview High chose to play unified soccer and track. On March 25th,  Crestview High School’s Key Club had their first soccer game. All of the Special Olympic games were held at the Crestview High Track, Football, and Soccer fields around 9 am.

The unified soccer team started the game off a little rough but quickly made adjustments. Madison North was one of the team members that made a goal. By the end of the game, the score was 6-3 but the team members were just happy to be there and be a part of something wonderful.

The next game will be on Saturday, April 8th.
