Team Force victorious in football, bowling
Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School’s Special Olympics team, Team Force, is on a winning streak. The team, coached by Jason Yeaman and Michael Ridout, won the State Flag Football Championship this past weekend in Waco.
The team got to practice in Baylor’s indoor football facilities where the Baylor Bears hone their skills. While there, the team was featured in a segment on KCEN TV.
Team members are, from left to right, #2 Ethan McKinley, #4 Richard Warner, #17 Austin King, #56 Clyde Jones, #44 Dustin Ducharme, #9 Korey Denton, #12 Hayden Wheeler, #76 Courtney Chauvin, #7 Malerie Corbell, #1 Landon Alford, and #24 Aaron Wilson.
Not to be outdone by their football-throwing classmates, Team Force bowlers brought home their own medals from Saturday’s Special Olympics competition. They include Eddie Shaw, who won a silver medal in his division, Blake Cassidy who also earned a silver in her division, and Kallie McNabb who was the gold medal winner in her division.
