Bethel’s Special Olympics bowling teams gear up for weekend tourney


All right, so you got this? Go Montray! Go! Come on! Yeah! This is our final practice. We’ve been practicing for about six weeks
for our upcoming competition at Pacific Lanes this Saturday. And all of our kids will be participating
in either team events, doubles events, or singles events. I really like my team, there’s a lot of nice
people and they are really nice to me, and they keep making it where I can move forward. And I also make it where they can move forward. My best score so far is 73! Good job Lucinda! Well, my favorite part about being on the
bowling team is you get strikes, and I got about two or three turkeys. I like making strikes. Forever! It’s just fun to see the kids competing and
having fun outside of the school day. We work really hard at school, and we get
to play really hard with the competition. We have good teams and we have great coaches. My coach? She is very nice. She’s an excellent coach. They’re really good people and they help me. She is amazing. We have four girls from our Bethel Braves
traditional team, they’re actually bowling out here with some of our Special Olympics
athletes on Unified teams. It’s actually a really good experience. Getting to have more experience of working
with different types of people, I’m getting to know more people that actually go to our
school, and I like being a part of different programs here at Bethel. Trying to shoot a bowling ball down
those bowling alleys is like the Star Wars movie; trying to shoot like when Luke Skywalker
tries to shoot right down into the airshaft. Good! It’s a fun day, it really is. It’s heartwarming to see all of the kids. Come out there with a smile, no matter what
you get bowling. You know, it’s okay, there’s always the next
frame. And try to turn it with your wrist, like you’re
using the Force.
