Athletes participate in Special Olympics Track and Field Meet

Some students on the North Shore cheered on athletes participating in Special Olympics.

The St. Tammany Parish school system held its annual Special Olympics Junior High Track and Field meet Wednesday.

One of the organizers says this is the first year special education students in senior high schools would not participate at the same meet as the junior high.

"We have been doing this for over 20 years. This is our first year to have just the junior high together. Typically, we have put our junior high and our high school students together," said Sharon Hosch, Special Education Supervisor., St. Tammany Parish Public Schools. "We are very excited about it"

The winners of this meet will move on to compete in the statewide games, Special Olympics Louisiana.
