EG grabs medals at Special Olympics

Eagle Grove Elementary and Robert Blue Middle School students, along with a couple of local Eagle Grove residents, took part in the Special Olympics held in Fort Dodge recently.

This year there were 31 athletes participating at the Regional Special Olympics in Fort Dodge. Fifteen athletes earned a blue ribbon and advanced to the state competition which was held in Ames this past Friday and Saturday.

“Congratulations to all these hard-working athletes. We are super proud of you,” said Coach Jen Conaway.

All of the athletes had fun participating, despite the once again cloudy skies and chilly weather. But when it came to medals - Eagle Grove athletes turned on the heat.
