CINCINNATI -- Several Special Olympic athletes and their “buddies” met at Cincinnati Country Day Thursday for a friendly game of hoops.
Students from several schools, including Oak Hills, St. Bernard and Harrison High School were on hand to officiate, coach and cheer on the participants.
Special Olympics Director Janet Smith said such events demonstrate the true meaning of teamwork.
"A lot of them don't get the opportunity to play on a team, so that’s what (the) Special Olympics is all about -- to bring the out here to be able to play on an athletic team, on a basketball team on a softball team -- just team playing,” Smith said.
This is the 10th year that local high school athletes and Special Olympics athletes have come together at Country Day.
