On Saturday, May 4, 2013 a group of 19 Student Athletes traveled to West Point to compete in the Regional Spring Special Olympics Games. It was a beautiful day for the athletes as they competed in running, jumping and throwing events. This was Washingtonville’s seventh trip to the Special Olympics. This year, for the first time, we had 3 students successfully participate in the aquatics competition. The Special Olympics group meets weekly throughout the school year in preparation for the events. There are many adult and student volunteers that help out at practices and we always have a tremendous turnout on the day of the event. Thank you to all of the Athletes, Coaches, Volunteers, Administrators, the Seahawks Swim Team and West Point Cadets that create this special opportunity for our students.
