The Eastside Catholic baseball program stepped away from the field Saturday to volunteer at the Washington State Special Olympics King County and Northwest Regions swim meet, which was held at the King County Aquatic Center.

“The Special Olympics always puts on an incredible program, and the volunteers did a phenomenal job,” said Rhonda Bunker, the school’s baseball team coordinator. “All the athletes, they cheered them on. They worked hard and it was special because of that fact that one of the athletes from Eastside Catholic won four golds at the event.”

Megan Mills (pictured above with Crusaders baseball players) won four gold medals and the Eastside Catholic players were there to support her.

A total of 41 players showed up and worked as event timers and marshals, who would walk participants got to their events on time, among other tasks. They made sure the competitors were able to have an enjoyable experience.

“They were all working hard the whole time they were there,” Bunker said.
