The Amador Valley Athletic Boosters hosted the annual Special Olympics East Bay Track and Volleyball Tournaments last Saturday with 13 track teams and 10 volleyball squads.

In support of the competing Special Olympics athletes, more than 350 local volunteers helped put on the event, including student and parents from Amador Valley and Foothill high schools, and Hart, Harvest Park and Pleasanton middle schools, as well as from the National Charity League, Boys Team Charity, Young Men's Service League and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The opening ceremonies included Macey Fisher of Amador, who sang the national anthem, the Pleasanton Police Department colorguard, Pleasanton City Councilwoman Kathy Narum and former San Francisco 49ers tight end Greg Clark, who spent the day presenting awards to the athletes.
