Smiles of Victory
For the 25th year, McDaniel students teamed up with students with disabilities in grades K-12 to play in the Tournament of Champions.
A Winning Formula
The 25th annual “Tournament of Champions” brought nearly 100 students in grades K – 12 with orthopedic, visual and behavioral needs to campus for the action-filled day. Each student was paired with a “buddy” from McDaniel and had the opportunity to participate in 16 different events, such as scooter races, hula hooping, hockey and golfing. Students do not compete against each other and can go back to events to better their own scores. Organized by students in the Adapted Physical Education class in conjunction with the Carroll County Therapeutic Recreation Council, “Tournament of Champions” is designed for students who don’t qualify for Special Olympics but need a specialized event so that they can challenge themselves and demonstrate their skills.

It's already attracting positive buzz, with raves from USA Today and authors including Mark Bowden of “Black Hawk Down” and crime novelist Edna Buchanan.
