GREENVILLE (WNCT) – The back-to-back American Athletic Conference champion swimming and diving squad from East Carolina had some very special visitors on Tuesday afternoon.
ECU Coach Rick Kobe and his Pirates welcomed area swimmers who participate in the Special Olympics program to the Minges pool.
“Our athletes certainly enjoy this day,” said Kobe, who has hosted the group for a couple of decades. “We try to do this every year because we really enjoy it.”
The Special Olympic athletes were treated to an hour of pool time with special individualized instruction for many of them.
