The excitement expressed from the athletes was mirrored by their student leaders all day at Special Games at Lincoln-Way West on Thursday, March 12. 

It didn’t matter who won the race or how many baskets an athlete made, smiles were beaming all day, just as they should have been. And each school had its own theme and dressed accordingly. LW West was lumberjacks, LW Central was WWE and LW East was ’70s themed.
