On Saturday (Sept. 17), several UVA teams took part in the Gene Arnold Memorial Area 3 Special Olympics 10k Run. The #UVAMLax team worked the logistical side of the event, working in a variety of roles from parking attendants to traffic stewards on the race course. The #UVAWBB team partnered with Special Olympians to be their race buddies for the two-mile walk. Two other teams, the wrestling and women’s lacrosse teams, competed in the 10k with George Dicamillo, Micky Phillippi and Alex Grace winning their age brackets and Maggie Jackson, Sophie Alecce, Sam Martino, Jack Shaffer placing in the top-three in theirs.
After Sunday’s game, #UVAFH head coach Michele Madison took time to meet with Girl Scouts, including members ofÂ Troop #707 from Orange, Va., to and speak with them about leadership. The troop, as well as members of Cav Man’s Crew collected player autographs on team posters.
