League play for Kenora’s Special Olympic Bowlers is at a close for the season.

Ending the season strong was Daley Ross with 236, who was followed by Cory Landseidel at 188 and Scott Malmo at 181. Leading the women was Brittany Malmo with a high 178. Jem Swain-Moeller and Diane Vivan tied a close second at 169.

The athletes have their awards banquet to look forward to this weekend and Gary Sokolotuk, coordinator for Kenora’s Special Olympics says it should be a good turnout.

“We start off with the big meal at the Ukrainian Hall, followed by the awards and plaque ceremonies and a dance. We have about 35 athletes and approximately 97 attending the banquet. It’s a really fun night where the athletes can let loose and have a lot of fun to end the year,” he says.bowlerspeiB

Three Kenora bowlers recently represented the league well at Nationals in 5-pin. Scott Malmo, Meghan Wheatstone and Shane Legros placed fifth out of 40 teams.

“Were still hailing the results of our athletes that placed fifth at Nationals in Prince Edward Island. Kudos to them and all of our local athletes on a terrific season,” he added.

Soccer has also begun for Special Olympics Kenora, and runs every Thursday night at King George School. Swimming completed last week and will reconvene in September.

The Rotary Club of Kenora, in partnership with Kenora Special Olympics will hold a Lucky Duck Race at McLeod Park on Canada Day.
