About 500 athletes from schools in the Tri-Cities area came to James Logan High School Friday morning to participate in a Special Olympics track event in the stadium.

The event kicked off as teams and their coaches from the Fremont and Newark school districts marched behind banners identifying their schools.

They were cheered on by hundreds of fans, family members and Logan students and staff, many who were working as volunteers helping to stage the event. The march climaxed when the teams marched through the inflatable Colts arch used at football games to be greater by a throng of cheering supporters waiting for them.

The Logan team was escorted by members of the school's cheerleading team.
