KISD Special Olympics athletes honored

Athletes with the Kingsville Independent School District’s Special Olympics bowling team were recognized in early December by school board trustees for their performance at a meet held on Nov. 1-2 at Bowlero bowling alley in Corpus Christi.

The team was awarded 20 gold medals, 18 silver medals, 15 bronze medals, seven fourth place and five fifth place finishes.

Pictured with the athletes are members of the Kingsville Lions Club. The organization donated nearly $990 to purchase eight adaptive bowling ramps for use by the district’s Special Olympics bowling team when they practice at the NAS-Kingsville’s bowling alley. (Submitted Item)
