The annual Area 16 Special Olympics Track and Field meet in Rutherford County took place Friday morning at the Dean Hayes Track and Soccer Stadium on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University.

The competition featured 530 athletes with 395 representing 33 of 47 Rutherford County schools, event organizer Lou Paschall said.

Area 16 Special Olympics was founded in 1968.

This year’s track and field meet was made possible in part by grants from Sharing Change and Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund.
