Local Special Olympic Hoopsters Bring Home the Gold
Friday Jul 06, 2018 12:00am

Hoosier Basketball History has been made by a local team.

The Special Olympics-DeKalb County basketball team is bringing home the gold after competing in the USA Games.

After playing numerous teams, the team competed against Team Nevada in the final game. It was a nail-bitting win, with Team Indiana winning 31-30.

The Special Olympics-DeKalb County basketball team was selected just over a year ago from over 250 Indiana teams based on their performance during the 2017 season.

A welcome home celebration is scheduled for this Sunday (July 8th) at the YMCA in Auburn from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The community is encouraged to attend.
