UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - More than 2,000 athletes from across Pennsylvania competed on Penn State's campus this weekend as part of the 2014 Special Olympics Summer Games.
The Opening Ceremonies took place on Thursday inside Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, kicking off a weekend of competition. Student-athletes from across a number of Penn State teams volunteered at the Summer Games over the weekend.
"I love to give back to the community. We feel like the community does so much for us, so we can't wait to give back," football redshirt freshman Andrew Nelson said.
"I love helping out at the Special Olmypics," women's volleyball sophomore Kelly Robertson said. "It's a great atmosphere, and it's really fun to see everyone get excited about sports like we do."
