In March 2015, Michigan State student Jessica Osos brought to life her idea of creating a MSU Special Olympics league. She, with the help of others, put together a four-team league filled with student volunteers and alumni special athletes from around the mid-Michigan area. The teams were the Ultimate Iguanas vs. Spartacus and the Monstars vs. Spartan Wolfpack. While on the court, there had to be two volunteers and 3 athletes at a time. Emotions throughout the league season rose and there was one champion in the end. I followed the Spartan Special Olympics team all throughout March and April, watch the journey here.
