Friendswood ISD’s Special Olympics Swim Team Goes Gold

gold trophy

The Friendswood Special Olympics Mustang Swim Team brought home 68 gold medals and many more from three events in their incredible season this year! The three significant events that the team competed in were “the Gulf Coast Area 22 competition in Sugar Land, the Greater Houston Area 4 competition and the State Competition.”

Lydia Harrington, Head Coach of the Friendswood Special Olympics Mustang Swim Team, trained each student and inspired them to continuously improve with each event. Harrington led a team of 17 athletes in addition to seven other unified athletes who trained “all summer for the three Fall competitions.” A spectacular team of 25 volunteers helped to support Lydia Harrington and the Special Olympics Swim Team alongside four amazing Volunteer Coaches and the Head of Delegation. Fantastic job, team!
