Mon valley area athletes participated in the Special Olympics Bocce Tournament at Slippery Rock University on Sunday Sept. 29, 2019.
|Special Olympics Washington County Bocce Team: (Bottom Row)- Emily Roth; Becky Cook; Brittany Baron. (Middle Row)- Cliff Cook; Dustin Stark; Jeff White; Derick Cernicky. (Top Row)- Chris Duggan; Steve Wood; Sal Iacovino, Katie Sirochman; Frank Fraino.|
This one day indoor tournament included Special Olympic athletes from several Pennsylvania counties. Many Slippery Rock University students volunteered their time on this day, so these athletes could have a positive, and fun tournament.
These athletes along with other bocce participants practice weekly at Epiphany of our Lord Church in Monessen during the summer months. They are also active members of the A.A.R.C.D.D. Mon Valley organization. Chris Duggan, Steve Wood, Jeff White, and Sal Iacovino all qualified to advance to the state final bocce round at Villanova University in November.
