Local Special Olympians bring home nine awards

Local athletes from Northern Access Special Olympics recently competed in the Special Olympics Wisconsin Summer Games in Stevens Point.

Coach Lou Deditz said he was a bit nervous when the games began, as the weather was cool and rainy.

“The athletes demonstrated strength and persistence, not once complaining about the conditions,” he said. “The coaches, volunteers, friends and family are so proud of the athletes, as they medaled in nine of 11 events.”

Every athlete who participated brought home a medal.
