Sharks steal the day!
The Issaquah Community Center hosted the 2013 Special Olympics
Elizabeth R. turned in one of her best performances of the season at the King County Tournament. You'll see in the video how her pragmatic game plan helped rack up the score for the undercover Slammin' Sharks. Carolyn D. was the leader in assists and scored several baskets for the team. After losing their first game, The Slammin' Sharks won this game and went on to win their final game too. The Slammers came in 5th overall.
Robert, an excellent dribbler, led the opposition in re-bounds. (His kindness, however, got him into a little hot water when he assisted his house-mate Carolyn with a basket.) Patty Mc., (denied a foul call when Carolyn charged her best scoring opportunity) encouraged everyone to play their best and delighted in successful shooting regardless of which team scored.
The Hungry Sharks were awarded 8th place -- but best of all, everyone had a great time enjoying the game, encouraging one another and celebrating skills and achievements.
