Special Olympics Bowlers Practice for State Games

Posted: Updated:

Special Olympics bowlers from around the region are getting ready for the state games.

On Sunday, the Area Three Special Olympics bowling league practiced for the last time this season. Kegler's Lanes in Albemarle County was packed with 115 bowlers and crowds of family members and volunteers.

 The athletes say it's all about playing the game with their friends.

"It doesn't matter if you win or lose, it's how you play the game, you're just here to have fun," said Chris Carter, a bowler.

The six bowlers with the highest average scores of the season will head to northern Virginia next week for the Virginia state winter games.
