Olympics honor

Southern Oregonians

Three Southern Oregon residents were recently honored for participation in Special Olympics Oregon at the group's annual volunteer recognition banquet.

Howard Zelich, David Andrews and the Sewell family each walked away with the top honors for Southern Oregon.

Zelich was named outstanding coach of the year for his exploits in soccer, basketball, volleyball and golf.

Andrews was recognized as athlete of the year for his efforts in alpine skiing, culminating in a near-perfect run at the State Winter Games.

The Sewell family of Sharon, Rick, Patrick and Katie were honored as outstanding family of the year. They have attended six of the seven Special Olympics Family Camps, and last year cooked a holiday meal for all of the athletes and coaches in the swimming program.
