CARTERVILLE-- It's not about the wins or losses for the Mt. Vernon Special Olympics squad, but instead about having fun and learning the game. The eight-man and woman team visited Carterville for a doubleheader, beating the all-female Lightning Bolts 26-10 and falling to the all-male Lightning Bolts 24-10. Nathanael Garner led the Ram with 14 points.

The Rams are hoping to qualify for the Special Olympics State Tournament later this spring.
