On Tuesday, October 16, 2018, Prairie Middle and High School special education students participated in the east central Special Olympics Bowling tournament at Westdale Bowling Alley.

 

After practice at the bowling alley, it was finally time for students to participate in the tournament. At 9:30 in the morning, the Special Olympics torch was brought in along with the American Flag carried by Prairie freshman, Owen Norby. After everyone in the bowling alley spoke the Pledge of Allegiance, it was time to bowl.

 

Each student bowled two full games and had a smile on their face the whole time.

 

“The athletes all had a great time and had success in a setting that allowed them to participate fully,” Prairie High School special education teacher, Mrs. Ashby commented.

 

Even though students went up against other schools like Cedar Rapids Jefferson and Linn-Mar, there was no bad sportsmanship in sight. Students were high-fiving and cheering each other on.

 

Once each lane was done with their two games, the bowlers were awarded ribbons for their placement of score.  

“The kids have a lot of fun! It is well run and organized.” Prairie Point special education teacher Ms. Lynch commented.

 

Both Prairie High School and Prairie Point Middle School has participated in this event for many years. This year, seven students from Prairie Point and five students from Prairie High School will be moving onto State for bowling.

 

Placing first at this tournament and moving onto state will be Deena Buhs, Henry Gandner, Bryce Goodson, Klou Uhman, and Preston Oshel from the high school. The students at Point moving onto State are Brayden Pisarik, Braden Weber, Dakota Reynolds, Jessika Koenes, Baylie Framback, Emma Leis, and Owen Norby.  

 

The State bowling tournament will take place on November 17th, 2018 at the Westdale Bowling Alley.
