Special Olympics Bowling at Southern Lanes

By Jake Boswell | 

The event at Southern Lanes in Bowling Green included participants from Allen, Barren, Monroe, Simpson, and Warren counties just to name a few. Scores averaged anywhere between one hundred and two hundred throughout the competition. Though the event is all about the athletes, it's the volunteers that make events like this possible.

"All of our coaches are volunteers.We wouldn't even be as big as we are without our volunteers. It's just people within the community that want to help. We have our swim coach who's a volunteer. Our basketball coaches are volunteers. It's great for them to come out and gain experience with the athletes and be able to do things like that." commented Nicole Defreeze of the Bowling Green Special Olympics.

The next round for the athletes is the state competition in Louisville.
