There were over 800 athletes and over 800 volunteers for the two day event.

Plaquemine High School participated for the first time ever in the 2019 Special Olympics-Louisiana Capital Area.

There were over 800 athletes and over 800 volunteers for the two day event. It was a competitive day for the students filled with a 50 meter and 100 meter walk and run. The students also competed in the softball throw.

This is an amazing event that will be continued every year. The Plaquemine High students wanted to show off their talents and they did so proudly.

One student that finished in first place for the 50 meter run said "Now that’s how it’s done." Another student who finished in third place for the 50 meter run said "I will get first place next year."

Thanks so much to all of the coaches, teachers, parents and students for continuous support for these amazing students.
