Waupaca Comets Special Olympics denied their win to play in sectionals because regional director messed up!
I want everyone to know that my Special Olympic basketball team had worked their hearts and souls out to earn their spot into sectionals, and it was just RIPPED right away from them. All because we were given an incorrect email address. I have begged and pleaded my case that it was the regional directors error however nobody is willing to allow us to participate in sectionals this weekend. I have cried for days over this and cannot believe that Special Olympics is handling it the way the are. These athletes earned their spot and to tell them you WON, but, you cannot participate is more than heartbreaking. All because the regional director didn't get my email because I was given an incorrect email address. Please share this post with everyone as my team deserves ALL the recognition for such an amazing year. This is not how the season was to end. They supposedly explored all options however to tell me on the phone that he wasn't very optimistic... From that moment I knew he wasn't even going to try. I've left a message for the president of Special Olympics but have yet to hear from him. I'm struggling with this as it is so hard for these athetes to understand what went wrong when ultimately they had to win both games at districts to advance and they DID. What a great season we had. I love these athletes and will do whatever it takes as they deserve their hard earned spot you should be proud Comets 2 for such an amazing season!
**** HELP US GET WHAT THESE KIDS DESERVE, THEIR CHANCE TO PLAY **** Special Olympics Wisconsin your should be ASHAMED!
