07-10_olympics_1Forty teams—with 518 athletes and coaches from Greater Boston and northern Massachusetts—traveled to Milton on Sunday, October 21, for the regional qualifying tournament for Special Olympics soccer teams. Volunteers, including over 50 from Milton Academy’s student body, set up the event at the crack of dawn, ran the opening ceremonies, refereed the games, kept score, presented the awards, prepared and served lunch, and cleaned up the nine game fields at the end of the day. The Milton Mustangs Special Olympics team, which has practiced and played with Milton students on campus every Sunday, joined in the competition. Milton Academy will host an invitational basketball tournament for the Special Olympics in January and a track qualifier during the month of May.
