Congratulations Special Olympians!
UDS All-Star Training Club sent 103 athletes, coaches and partners to Columbus last month for the State Special Olympic finals in five different sports. When the weekend was complete, UDS All-Star Training Club earned 25 gold, 13 silver and 6 bronze medals. We were entered in 59 events and ATC was the third largest program in the state of Ohio - only Franklin County Board of DD and Franklin County Schools in Columbus were larger than our program.
There were two highlights worth noting. First, the ATC #1 soccer team defeated the Deepwood County team out of Lake, Ohio in dramatic fashion. (This team has beaten us three years in a row for the gold). The game ended in a 0-0 tie. ATC #1 won the gold by winning 2-1 on penalty kicks.
The other highlight of the weekend was the introduction of ATC gymnastics to the state games. We had three young ladies represented in five events and we captured three gold medals! Abby, Jenna and Elise made UDS All- Star Training Club proud!
Congratulations to all of the UDS All-Star Training Club State Special Olympians.
