The Pelican Rapids Special Olympics Team competed in the Annual Basketball Competition in Fergus Falls. They did an amazing job hosting again this year, and Pelican athletes had a memorable day.

The morning started out with all the athletes doing individual skills. They are scored on their ability to dribble, shoot, and pass. The athletes finished the day off with some of the athletes competing in a 3-on-3 tournament.

“Overall, is was a successful and fun day. Pelican had two teams compete this year and they did well and made us all proud! As always, thank you for your continued support. Our next event is coming up in May, when Pelican Rapids again hosts this years regional Track and Field Meet,” noted Special Olympics Coach Karli Kirkwood.
