PAEC Athletics

 Congratulations PAEC Athletes!

PAEC Special Olympics staff is proud to announce that the PAEC Bulldogs, PAEC Tigers and Individual Skills athletes had a very successful trip to Illinois State University for the 2017 State Basketball Tournament. The Bulldogs won the State Championship in Division 9 by a score of 37-31 in overtime. Down 11 with 4:21 remaining in the game the Bulldogs mounted a comeback to tie the game at 31 and send it into overtime. In overtime the Bulldogs defense stiffened and were able to come away with the State Championship. The PAEC Tigers took the silver medal in Division 5 having a very competitive game against Wendell Green. It was a seesaw battle most of the way, but Wendell Green was just a little stronger in the end. We are extremely proud of the Tigers 2nd place finish. Finally, we had one individual skills athlete who participated. She has worked extremely hard over the past few month and it paid off with a 2nd place finish as well. Congratulations to the PAEC Special Olympics Coaches, Administration, Staff, Parents and most importantly the student-athletes on a fantastic season. We look forward to another great year next season.

Well done PAEC!!!!
