Congratulations to Team Washington on an outstanding performance at last week’s Special Olympic National Games in Lincoln, Nebraska. They took home 11 gold, 22 silver and 15 bronze medals. Two of these medalists are from the Fifth District: Jason Raymond from Spokane won 1 gold and 3 bronze medals in swimming, and Scott Tobin of Cheney brought home 3 gold and 1 silver medal in Track and Field. Our athletes also won medals in bowling, weight-lifting, shot-put and aquatics – and they were extraordinarily successful in many other events, too. Congratulations to all of them!
