(Cody, WY) – The Riverton High School Special Olympics team competed at the Cody Area Games on Friday, May 14th.
The high school Olympians competed in track and field, swimming, and a basketball skills competition.
The athletes in attendance were: Tamara Armajo, Mason Berg, Tye Fegler, Joseph James, Rueben Aragon, Jesse Jaite and James McCarry.
The kids were coached by Kelsey Harder, Henry Lynn and Lars Flanagan.
“We as coaches were so impressed with the spirit of the games, the sportsmanship and the positive nature of competition not only with our kids but with all the athletes,” states coach Lars Flanagan.
“It was the first venture into Special Olympics that RHS has done for a few years. Next year we are striving to compete as a Unified Team. The Unified team will join people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team competing together.”
Well done RHS Olympians!
