Meet Mary Ellen Eagle, she will be the coach for Bowling at USA Games for Team Washington. Coaching since 1976 once had 4 athletes under her belt and now is in charge of 95. Over her years of coaching she has had many memories but her favorite memory is when an athlete and her mom together connected by a baton walked a race and received a gold medal in the race being the ages of 90 and 64 years old. Special Olympics to Mary Ellen means an opportunity for all to play sports, a chance to succeed in something athletes have practiced in. A chance to be social, respected and make friends with others outside of their team mates and their coaches. Mary Ellen chooses to be a coach because she can! She is excited to help her athletes in bowling do well and be there to help them make new friends and be so proud of themselves.
