In other recent news from the Dragons, on March 6 and 7, the Fayette County Dragons basketball team traveled to Bowling Green State University for the Special Olympics of Ohio Division 5 Final 4.
“We lost on Saturday to Wyandot County in the semi-final. It was a tough battle the whole game, and we lost by three,” explained Chad Blakeley, Special Olympics coordinator.
On Sunday was the consolation final.
“We defeated Medina to finish third,” said Blakeley. “We started with 16 players at the beginning of the year. By the second week of December, we were down to seven because of COVID, injuries and various other reasons. The team looked like they wouldn’t win very many games this year. They worked hard to get better. They won the South-central regional tournament and stamped their ticket to the state final four.”
