If you looked away to tie your shoes or drink water, you would have missed Taylor Communications’ blazing fast Team Ski performance. They are the Team Ski overall champion with an astonishing 1:18.70. Montgomery County Job & Family Services came in second place with 1:52.01. Reynolds & Reynolds Diesel took third place with 1:55.03, edging out the other two Reynolds & Reynolds teams by fractions of a second. That said, nothing beat seeing every single team get together as one big team to cheer on the Special Olympics. Those guys did a great job and certainly felt the love and support from all of you, thank you.
2017 Team Ski Results
Tug of War:
Some teams must have had Wheaties for breakfast and spinach for lunch on Tuesday, because we saw some amazingly competitive tugs out there. A few tugs went quickly, while others lasted what felt like an hour. You could see the sun setting during the quarter-final between LexisNexis and Mont. Co. JFS, that was one of the best tugs of the night. After that tug, LexisNexis advanced to the final four, joined by Reynolds & Reynolds Nitro (who had to go against their other team, Reynolds & Reynolds Diesel), Eastway and Synchrony Financial. Synchrony Financial and Eastway won their semi-final games against Reynolds Nitro and LexisNexis, and advanced to tug a spectacular final. After a very intense final tug (I bet those arms are sore today), Synchrony Financial became the Tug of War 2017 champion. Eastway took 2nd place, LexisNexis came in 3rd and Reynolds Nitro in 4th.
