Upshur County Crew has become a fast and growing population for Special Olympics Texas athletes. The group has gone from having one school district involved with 9 students to having 51 students involved from 5 different school districts.


This year was a year of many firsts. The Upshur County Crew had 2 unified relay teams this year. They also had a wonderful opportunity to host our 1st local event back in March, and even attended state Summer Games producing a state champion 4x100m relay team.

So look out for Upshur County Crew because if not they will just pass you on by.
