Grundy, Marion, Bedsoe, and Sequatchie counties came together on Friday, to compete in this year’s Special Olympics. Lisa Phipps, special education teacher in the TLC room at Grundy County High School said the event, in which special education students in grades one through twelve compete with area schools, was wonderful and everyone had a great time. “This year, a new event was held – the baton relay – and Grundy County students won the race,” said Phipps. “They have bragging rights until next year’s Special Olympics!” Phipps said Grundy County students were the big winners this year and brought home the most gold medals.
