Wright State student-athletes hosted 16 athletes from Special Olympics of Greater Dayton during an indoor field day to help celebrate National Student-Athlete Day on April 18.
The day recognizes the accomplishments of student-athletes who excel in the classroom, on the playing fields and who give back to their community through service projects.
Dozens of Wright State student-athletes and Special Olympians played numerous games, including matt ball, relay races, tic-tack-toe races and basketball.
“It’s a bunch of fun. They get to teach us some things and we teach them some things,” said Sam Meek, a senior golfer.
The field day event took place in Wright State’s Setzer Pavilion. Following the field day, Olympians attended the Wright State softball game versus Morehead State.
