Basketball is such a popular sport amongst Special Olympics athletes, the state-level competition has been split into two regional one-day events.  Nearly 1500 athletes total competed at the state level this year.
Please note that the state-level competition for cheerleading is now being held as a separate event on March 1.
Results are now posted & Photos from the Western Tournament will be available soon!


Thanks so much to the more than 300 volunteers who helped make our basketball tournaments such a success!
