Athletics Story Wins Special Olympics Spotlight Poll

A UMW Athletics story is the winner of the February NCAA Division III Special Olympics Spotlight Poll.

The poll is a story-telling initiative that features three new stories per month, each highlighting a Division III and Special Olympics joint activity or event.

The winning story — UMW Athletics Welcomes Special Olympics Virginia Athletes to Basketball Doubleheader — got 49 percent of the votes.

The university will get $500 toward its next Specialty Olympics activity, in addition to be recognized in the NCAA Division III Monthly Newsletter and on NCAA Division III social media channels.
