The bleachers at T.J. Walker Middle School in Sturgeon Bay will be full this Saturday as Door County’s Special Olympics basketball teams host a pair of games. Door County has three teams that travel around the area playing other Special Olympics basketball games for fun, but also with a little extra competition as well. Brent Fonferek plays for the Screaming Eagles and shared with DoorCountyDailyNews.com some of his teammates’ specialties during their last game, a close loss to Sheboygan.
Saturday’s games serve as a precursor for the District 5 regional basketball tournament in Sheboygan on March 1st. Games are slated to begin at 9 a.m. and will also feature a team from Kewaunee County.
