Alli Hill has competed in several sports for Special Olympics, including swimming, tennis, floor hockey, bowling, and she is currently on the Diva Sharks basketball team. On May 11, 2019, Alli helped her team earn the gold medal at the Spirit Games.

“Basketball with my teammates!” Alli said. “I love my girls and my coach. Shooting hoops, making shots, and the Shoot-A-Thons! I made 50 baskets for the fundraiser.”

During the week, Alli works in a local day program and volunteers at the food pantry. She is also an actor in the Major Impact Theater group.


Tamara Wilson was previously highlighted as one of the Athletes of the Week from the June 22 issue of the Gazette. For the past two years, she has been a member of the Special Olympics Diva Sharks basketball team.


On May 11, 2019, Tamara helped the Divas take the gold medal at the Spirit Games.

“Tam always wanted to be part of the Divas, but due to health concerns, she had to wait,” said Tamara’s mother, Terri. “She loves being on the team and the other girls have been so helpful and kind in helping Tamara understand the game.”
