The fourth CBC Cup was held at Kenton Ridge High School on Friday.

It was a competition where smiles, laughs, and cheering filled the gym.

The CBC Cup started as a way to give students with special needs a chance to represent their school and compete against their peers from other school districts.

Longtime Bellefontaine Athletic Director Matt Comstock introduced the idea to his peers a few years ago.

BHS hosted the first CBC Cup in 2019.

The Cup was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 because of COVID.

A dozen area schools were featured in this year's event, which started at 10 a.m. with the Parade of Teams and National Anthem.

Athletes then competed in several events, which included:

3-Point Contest
Frisbee Toss
Cornhole
Soccer Kick
Home Run Derby
10 Yard Dash
Bowling
Football Toss

Following lunch, the athletes were presented medals.

The BHS athletes were:

Matt Finch
Jasmine Wright
Sarah Morris
Addie Knotts
Gracie Kissling

Deacon Bensman
Alanna Heberling
Brad Johnson
Aloni Smith

Bellefontaine High School Special Education Teacher Skylar Mifsud reflected on this year's event, "The CBC Cup is one of the most rewarding days of the year for the league to come together for our special needs students. Despite having to move inside due to weather, our kids enjoyed competing in a variety of events. We appreciate our student coaches for their efforts today as well. It’s a rewarding day for everyone involved.”
