Dustin Blackburn and Richard Schatz won first at Special Olympics state basketball this spring!
“I worked hard and am proud of my medal,” said Richard.
The basketball game was difficult and went into overtime. In the end, Richard scored the winning two-pointer with a shot from the field, but he could not have done it without his teammates. Dustin plays forward on the team and goes wherever he is needed to defend his teammates.
He said, “the second game was the toughest — because they kept jabbing at me and trying to push me over — but I’m a wall when people try to do that.”
