Five Grand Ledge High School students traveled to the campus of Central Michigan University last week to compete in the Special Olympics Summer Games of Michgian.
To place at the swimming competition, athletes must finish in the top six in their event. The Grand Ledge squad led by coach Ann Manning had a very successful swim meet. Here are the awesome results!
