Because of Covid-19 related restrictions, Special Olympics events were held within each school, instead of the customary county competition.

South Fulton Middle/High School held their Special Olympics last week, with Kylee Burcham and Marcus Bonds placing first in Standing Long Jump; Amber Stroud and Ian Gilbert placing second; and Charlie Alfred and Monica Cobaxin, placing third.

In the Races’ competition, it was Burcham, Alfred and Bonds, first; Cobaxin, Stroud and Gilbert, second.

For the Softball Throw event, Cobaxin won first place, along with Stroud, Alfred and Bonds; while Burcham and Gilbert won second place.

The students and staff at SFMS/HS were assisted in coordinating the Olympics events by Dr. Clinton Smith and his students from University of Tennessee, Martin.
