Friday morning, students in Enterprise City Schools (ECS) participated in the first-ever Wildcat Olympics.

Special needs students competed in a variety of fun athletic events such as standing long jumps, running long jumps, softball throws, 3-pound shotput throws, frisbee throws, and 50-, 100-, 200-, and 400-meter dash races.

All schools, a total of ten, and over 100 students from ECS participated in the fun event. 

Enterprise High School (EHS) Head Track and Districtwide Performance and Wellness Coach Brad Fortney said he and Director of Special Education for ECS, Joy Lee Cain, came together to get the ball rolling for the event. Cain wanted to do something fun, different, and competitive for these students.

"It was so cool to watch. The students had so much fun and were so excited. It was so awesome for them to be in the spotlight," Fortney said.

Fortney said there was great support from the community, teachers, and administrators; he also said they had a lot of help from high school students like the football team and the All-State track team.

They tried to mirror the Olympics just like they are seen on television as much as possible; they passed the torch, and the EHS marching band played for opening ceremonies. 

There was even a special appearance from Enterprise Mayor William (Bill) Cooper.

Winners of each category were broken up by grade levels, and junior high and high school students combined to compete against each other.  

"I do not know who had more fun out of the teachers and students. They all had a blast," Fortney said. 

Great job to ECS staff and students! Events like these make school a fun and memorable place to be.
