2015 State Special Olympics Softball

Here are a few pictures I took from our weekend in Rapid City at state SO softball. Friday we spent the day sight seeing. First we went to Reptile Gardens and saw all kinds of different snakes, alligators, birds, turtles, spiders, and much more! We also went to a snake and bird show and got to take pictures with an owl. Next we went to Mt. Rushmore and saw the faces and a few of us went walking on the trails (a good pre-softball workout!). Saturday we played 2 games and finished the day with 1 win and 1 loss. Then it was time to party! We all got our boogie on at the dance, it was a blast as usual! Sunday we played 2 games again and again won 1 and lost 1. We finished the tournament in 3rd place and Josh Aderhold won the Spirit Award! It was a great weekend filled with lots of laughs and fun! Congrats and thank you to all the athletes on your hard work throughout our season, we coaches are so proud of you! Go Allstars!
