Special Olympics school bowling tournaments are underway across Delaware, where nearly 900 athletes and their Unified partners (peers without disabilities) are competing this month.

Last week, several competitors – from Springer, Knight Raiders and Meadowood Athletes United – bowled at Bowlerama in New Castle. They’re pictured above. Three more bowling rounds across the state take place this week, and the tournament concludes March 3 in Milford.

Bowling is one of the most popular sports for students who participate in Special Olympics, said Gary Cimaglia, SODE senior director of sports. “One of the neatest things about our athletes participating in bowling is that they can then transfer what they learn when they have opportunities to bowl with friends and family outside of the school day.”
