This past Sunday, Special Olympics Louisiana and our athletes were invited by Meghan Charbonnet to attend the LSU Women’s Soccer game against Mississippi State. Athletes from the Capital, Bayouland, and Florida Parishes areas attended. Nolan Cain gave our athletes a tour of the Alex Box Stadium where they got to see the locker room, meeting room, and go out onto the field and run the bases!
Our athletes also got to visit the LSU Football operations and were allowed to hang out on the LSU practice field. Then, they watched the LSU Women’s Soccer team take home a victory against MS State. The LSU Track, Women’s Gymnastics, Swimming, and Diving teams sat with our group at the game. Craig Loston, LSU football safety, even came out and met our athletes. They all signed autographs and took pictures and made it a day to remember!
