Nearly 1,800 athletes and Unified partners are showing off their skills at the 2019 Special Olympics North Carolina Summer Games this weekend.
Competition will take place in seven sports at various Raleigh-area locations.
Triad swimmers (Guilford/High Point, Guilford/Greensboro and Forsyth County) have so far combined for nine golds, 12 silvers, two bronzes and five 4th-place ribbons. More events will be on Sunday.
The Greensboro Gators softball team lost both games Saturday but will play again Sunday.
The Greensboro Trackers found out their head coach Linda had to miss the games due to her husband having heart surgery. This made these young men more determined to do their best in her honor! They won one gold, three silver and two bronze medals on Saturday, with three more events Sunday.
