Volleyball Teams Honored By Special Olympics

The Johnson & Wales University men’s and women’s volleyball teams have been selected to receive the 2011 Special Olympics Spirit of Sport Award.

Associate Director of Athletics and former head women's coach Jamie Marcoux and head men’s Volleyball Coach Scott Reslow have, over the past several years, hosted Special Olympics during the spring to get the athletes ready for competition.  The Wildcats coaches and players teach the athletes the fundamentals of the game and also serve as officials during the contests.

Special Olympics of Rhode Island Chief Executive Officer Dennis DeJesus says that through the support and participation by the JWU volleyball teams, "the public has been given a better understanding and appreciation of the capabilities of children and adults with intellectual disabilities."

This past January, the NCAA announced the creation of the Division III Special Olympics Initiative, to improve the lives of Special Olympics athletes through their involvement with Division III student-athletes and to foster a mutual learning experience between Division III student-athletes and Special Olympics athletes. Division III student-athletes across the country were encouraged to participate in existing Special Olympics events, create their own events, or otherwise serve to support the Special Olympics organization.

The teams will be honored at a reception on Thursday, October 20th at the West Valley Inn in West Warwick, R.I.
