With only one practice year under their belt, Homer Special Olympics scored big in the Special Olympics Fall Games in Anchorage over the weekend.
“We did awesome,” said Carol Shuler of Homer, the community coordinator. “We took five teams and three teams took gold, one took bronze and one took fourth. That was an awesome showing for our first time at state.”
Each two-person bocci team paired one Special Olympic and one non-Special Olympic athlete.
