Local athletes score well in Special Olympic tournaments

The local three-member team earned a silver medal at the state bowling tournament, competing against teams from all across the state at Kenmore Lanes.

A band of Enumclaw’s Special Olympics athletes competed recently in state tournaments.

The local three-member team earned a silver medal at the state bowling tournament, competing against teams from all across the state at Kenmore Lanes. Enumclaw was represented by Katie Baune, Josh Warren and Stacie Johnson and the group was coached by Bonnie Kennedy. Elise Skovemand also is part of the team but couldn’t make it to the lanes this year; however, her average still counted toward the total score.

Enumclaw Special Olympics gymnastics team competed in the parallel bars, balance beam, horse and presented their floor routine. The state meet took place in Lake City and, in the end, local athletes received multiple gold, silver and bronze medals. Participating were Mason Harper, Hannah Walker, Jillian DePoppe and Aubrie Murphy; the quartet was guided by coach Regina Chynoweth and assistant coach Mickela Carlson.

This marks the first year gymnastics has been offered as a Special Olympics sport in Washington.
