Sunshine and sunny smiles were aplenty at this year's Macon County Special Olympics Games held at the Macon Middle School athletic field on Friday, April 8. More than 80 athletes participated in 15 different track and field events, including the long jump, the tennis ball throw, the softball throw, the 50 meter dash and the 10 meter assisted walk, just to name a few.

The Special Olympics gives children and adults with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to be involved in athletic activities and competition which give them a sense of pride and belonging, keep them physically fit and bring them together with other members of the community.


Penny Moffitt, head coach of the Franklin High School varsity girl’s softball team, used four words to describe her team.

“We have it all,” said Moffitt. Her Lady Panthers are undefeated with an overall record of 9-0 and a Mountain Athletic Conference record of 7-0. Their record and the stat sheet clearly show that this team is loaded with talent.

The Lady Panthers have dominated their opposition this season, outscoring their competition 96-8 in their first nine games of the year.
