Happy Summer! Check our Sports, Sites and Schedules tab for updates. Practices start soon for our fall and early winter sports and now is the time to check out the schedule. Check in with the coach for a schedule.

Congratulations to our National Games participants Scott Renk (swimming) and Carlie Jones (gymnastics) now that they have finished a busy week in Princeton NJ. Pictured here is Scott's gold medal 4x25 relay team receiving their award along with the other eight competing teams.

Carlie Jones, from Montgomery County was 1 of 5 gymnasts from Pennsylvania to attend the Special Olympics USA National Games in NJ. As a Level 3 gymnasts (the highest level at these games), Carlie competed on all four events, Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Floor. The gymnasts had only one practice on Monday, June 16th. The Preliminary Round was held on Tuesday, June 17th, 25% of the athlete's score counted on this day. The finals, which were held on Thursday, June 19th, added the other 75% which gave the athletes their total scores.

Carlie was outstanding! She placed 2nd on Vault; 3rd on Uneven Bars; 2nd on Balance Beam; 4th on Floor; which gave her 3rd place in the All Around Category. Carlie was also selected to perform her Floor Routine on Thursday evening, when they held their "Showcase of Athletes."

Carlie, however, is most proud to have been able to represent Montgomery County on Team Pennsylvania!
