On Sunday May 18th, nine athletes from Bellport High School and Bellport Middle School participated in various track and field events at the Special Olympics Spring Games hosted by Southampton High School.  Athletes from a variety of Suffolk County Schools competed for gold, silver and bronze metals.  Mr. Patronaggio and Mr. Grossi volunteered to chaperone the event and were joined by high school students from the “Athletes Helping Others” club.  

The athletes trained for a month in various events with Mrs. Clark at Bellport HS and Mr. Giacomin at Bellport MS.  At the games, the athletes were cheered on and supported by the “Athletes Helping Others” club, Mr. Patronaggio, Mrs. Quatrale, Mr. Grossi, Mrs. Bodnarchuk, and Mrs. Giacomin.
