Boerne Special Olympians Head to State Meet

We were thrilled to see Boerne Blaze, Boerne’s Special Olympics team, in the October 8th issue of the Boerne Star. This article showcases the amazing journey of the Boerne Blaze and their exceptional Special Olympian swimmers, including my daughter, Alexa Boehm, who are gearing up for the state meet next weekend.

Boerne Special Olympians Head to State Meet - When Jenny Cashion made the decision to get actively involved with the Boerne Blaze Special Olympics, the organization offered two competitive opportunities for its 35-40 members, bowling and track. While events were participatory, the level of strident competition was lacking. That was 2007, and Cashion knew she wanted better offerings for the Blaze and its athletes, including her son, Adam, 29, who has Down syndrome. “That wasn’t sufficient for Jenny,” said Paul Cashion, her husband. “She sought to make it more organized -- not to be just a ‘club,’ but to be inclusive.” Since Jenny became delegation head in 2007, sport offerings increased to seven, including bowling, swimming, indoor triathlon, basketball, cycling, tennis, and kayaking, with demonstration sports Top Golf, pickleball and disc golf. Cheer and dance are on their way, she said. Blaze participatory membership has nearly doubled, to about 70 athletes today.

The article states “Boerne Blaze swim team members competed in the Sept. 16 SOTX Area 20 swim meet in San Antonio and garnered 42 medals in the competition with five other teams. Nine Blaze swimmers – Alexa Boehm, Adam Cashion, Kylah Daniel, Elijah Draughn, Christopher Drollinger, Carley Fisk, Rebecca Stone, Jeff Walker and Ansley Wigger — advanced to the SOTX Fall Classic state swim meet Oct. 20-21 on the Texas A&M Campus in College Station.”

We can’t wait to cheer on Alexa and all the Boerne State Swimmers in College Station next weekend!
