The Fayette County Dragons (special olympics team) took on a team composed of various members of the sheriff's office, along with Fayette County Prosecutor Jess Weade.
I only knew or recognized one of the referees, Wayne Arnold (seen on the right). It was an active game and reminded me of watching a tennis match as the teams ran back and forth from one end of the court to the other in a fast-paced game.The sheriff was on hand to watch the game from the sidelines. I only stayed for the first half of the game, because I found the bleacher seats too hard and with no back support, I could only sit for so long that way. But I did enjoy the half that I saw with the final half score of 22-6 when I left. I later learned that the Deputy Dawgs got beat 46-35 by the Dragons.
I believe the kids had a good time and even the cheerleaders got into the action being introduced at half-time. With the sale of special tee-shirts, in addition to the small admission charge, I know they raised a lot of money for special olympics that night.
