The UDS All-Star Training Club sent 48 athletes and 15 partners down to Columbus in 5 different sports (unified soccer, unified bocce, gymnastics, track/field and bowling) for the State Finals of Special Olympics the weekend of June 22nd. Once again, UDS All-Star Training Club was recorded as the 4th largest program in the state of Ohio. This is the first time we were actually larger than the Summit County Board of DD.
When the weekend concluded we medaled in 91% of the events. We had 30 gold medals, 21 Silver medals and 7 bronze medals covering 63 events.
A special shout out of appreciation goes to coaches Brooke Arbaugh and Nikki Sommer (gymnastics), Bill Arndt and Rick Englehart (Soccer) and to Leah Ocshenhirt and her husband Mark as well as Derek Osborn and Mike Lamenta. All of these coaches were pivotal to the success and enjoyment of all of the athletes representing UDS-All Star Training Club.
