“If you see Jairo, Trevor, or Andrew, please congratulate them on their wins at the SOTX State Swim Meet,” encouraged MFHS Life Skills Teacher, Fallan Sadler.  “All of our athletes are so proud to represent Marble Falls and would be thrilled to receive the pat on the back!”

The MFISD Special Olympics Swim Team is coached by Vickie Rodgers and Flo Denney.  Since the start of school, the team practiced once per week at the Mustang Athletic Club and once per week at the YMCA in Burnet. 

It will be a busy school year for the MFISD Special Olympians.  With the conclusion of the State Swim Meet, Marble Falls’ Special Olympian athletes will move into their Bowling season, followed by Basketball and Track.
