Athletes from the Groveport Special Olympics basketball program had fun scrimmaging with players and coaches from the Groveport Madison High School boys basketball team on March 27 at the high school. The event raised funds for Groveport Special Olympics as well as donations of food for the Groveport Food Pantry. GSO basketball coach Emma Thomas said many thanks go to Groveport Madison High School basketball coach Ryan Grashel for helping make the event happen.

  1. What a great night with all of the kids from GSO and GMHS basketball boys and cheerleaders. Words can’t describe the pride we as parents felt in watching the kids play BB and cheer with the high school students. Great memories were created!
