Breckinridge County Represented at State Special Olympics
Three student-athletes from Breckinridge County Middle School competed in the State of Kentucky Special Olympics held in Richmond, Kentucky on Saturday, June 4th. Competing on behalf of the county were Madison Gedling, Zachary McDaniel and Madison Gedling. Athletes earned medals by finishing in the top 3 in their age group and ribbons if they finished in places 4th-6th.
Zach McDaniel earned the county’s first medal by finishing 2nd in the 1500 meter run on Friday night and followed that performance with another 2nd place finish in the Softball Throw.
Madison Gedling participated in The 50-meter walk and Softball Throw. Madison finished 3rd in the Softball Throw for her aged group (12-15 years old), earning the county’s 3rd medal.
Joseph Grimes earned 4th place ribbons in the 50-meter dash and Softball Throw.
This is the first time Breckinridge County has participated in the State Special Olympics for several years. Participation would not have been possible without the dozen volunteers that took time each Wednesday to help run practices for the six weeks prior to the event. Also, several organizations gave monies to support the program to assist with uniforms, travel and registration fees. To find out how you can get involved in Special Olympics, contact Mark Grimes at 270-925-7891.
Future plans for the athletes include bowling, golf, cheerleading and bocce.
Congratulations to these Breckinridge County High School students!!
