Buffalo’s Special Olympians competed in the Virtual State Bowling Tournament on Nov. 13, with several athletes bringing home medals. 

In the singles ramp-assisted division 1, Tanner Bennett won a gold medal and Rhace Maya won bronze. 

In the singles ramp division 1, Landen Palmer was the silver medalist. And in the singles ramp division 2, Ava Wright won gold, followed by Kaitlyn Nilsen, who took home the silver. 

In the singles school-age division 2, Chloe Ginger won a bronze medal. And in the singles school-age division 3, Cammie Giger won fourth place.

Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, the athletes competed at the local bowling alley and scores from around the state were compiled. 

“It was a very different year, but the athletes worked very hard and the community rallied behind them to make it a special season,” said coach Kelsey Warren.
