About 120 Special Olympians showcased their talent during the Area Games Tuesday morning at the Charlie Merrifield Track inside the Gene Fogarty Complex.

Butte High student-athletes helped conduct the event, and Bulldog cheerleaders cheered on the Olympians.

Former NFL player and Butte High graduate Colt Anderson and local members of law enforcement handed out awards. Anderson and his company, UpTop Clothing, also handed out hats and water bottles to each athlete.

The Montana Special Olympics Summer Games will be held later this month in Great Falls. The State Basketball Tournament will be held in Butte in November.
