The University of La Verne softball team partnered with the Pomona Valley Wildcats Special Olympics team to host a clinic at Campus West earlier in September. Since then, the event has been nominated for the NCAA Division III Special Olympics Spotlight for the month of October.
The NCAA Division III Special Olympics Spotlight Poll is a story-telling initiative located on ncaa.org/D3SpecialOlympics . It features new stories each month that highlight a Division III and Special Olympics joint activity or event.
The story with the highest number of votes on the 25th day of each month is the winner. That institution or conference receives $500 to use for its next Special Olympics event. Both written and digital submissions are accepted. Featured stories are selected based on inclusion of the student-athlete perspective and Division III messaging.
To submit a story for consideration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
