A Proud Athlete

By Caleb Elliott (age 11), Wichita Falls, Texas

I really enjoyed participating in Sports Extravaganza in Irving, Texas. It was held on October 13th and 14th. I participated in the 100 meter dash, standing long jump, 50 meter dash, soft ball throw, beep ball stop, beep ball hit for distance, goal ball stop and goal ball roll. I enjoyed watching the goal ball events with the older kids.

My coach was Mr. Kaster. He is my Adaptive P. E. teacher at Ben Milam Elementary in Wichita Falls, Texas. He met me in Irving. I won three Silver medals, two Bronze medals, and one fourth place ribbon. We stood on a platform, and they put the medals around our necks, just like the Olympics! It was really neat!
