The Lyons are in the running for best Special Olympics partnership

Wheaton’s Women’s Basketball team has been recognized for demonstrating teamwork and service off the court. The National Collegiate Athletic Association placed them in this year’s Spotlight Poll for the Lyons’ partnership with a local Special Olympics team known as “Heller's Angels.” The Lyons are in the running to be named favorite story of the month in the initiative, which promotes partnerships between Special Olympics athletes and Division III student-athletes.

After taking an initial lead in the contest, the Lyons have fallen behind and are hoping for a boost of support. Votes may be cast through December 25 at: www.ncaa.org/D3SpecialOlympics.
