A joyful reunion and competition

It is an epic reunion – a celebration of snow and friendship. High fives, thumbs-ups, squeals of happiness, name chanting and so much cowbell, grace this gathering of extreme athletes at the 2020 Area Winter Games. The eleventh year of this Special Olympics Montana competition is a time of near-constant grinning and pure joy.

Finding their rhythm

We are now halfway through the basketball season and the second half of district play is about to begin. This is always an exciting time of year because you have seen each team at least once and coaches get the opportunity to more thoroughly tailor their strategy toward different teams in preparation for the district tournament.
