Springs School hosted the annual Special Olympics Bowling Tournament at Bowl Long Island in Patchogue this past Saturday. Our "Bonac Bowlers" team was responsible for leading the athletes in the Pledge of Allegiance, the Athletes' Oath and the Torch Run. Bowlers from all around Suffolk County joined the competition. Student Isaiah Brodie took gold with a personal best of 116. Juliana Figeuroa took silver. Paula Retana and Robbie Matz were awarded bronze medals. "It was such a wonderful day. I didn't even mind the snow!" joked organizer Whitney Reidlinger. 

The next event will be the 2015 Special Olympics Long Island Spring Games on Sunday, May 17th  at Southampton High School. Athletes will compete there in Track and Field and Tennis events. To volunteer, please click here.
