On Wednesday, September 8 and Friday, September 10, BTCS students from Holston View Elementary School and Tennessee High School (THS) traveled to Warpath Bowling Lanes in Kingsport to compete in Area 32 Special Olympics Bowling. 

THS sent over 20 athletes and peer tutors, Holston View sent over 15 athletes.

THS Special Services Department Chair Miller Foutch said, "Special Olympics is a great opportunity for our students to build their self-esteem and social skills while competitively participating in various sporting events. Athletes range in age from eight years through adult and the competition in our region can be tough. Our program would not be successful without the support of the BTCS community - from the administration to the peer tutors!"

The next Special Olympics competition is Bocce in October.

"We had to best time. Everyone loves getting medals. We are looking forward to Bocce in October," said Holston View teacher Debbie Devault.

Congratulations to all these students for their participation!
