Athlete Spotlight – Stephanie Mack, Horry County
Special Olympics has forever changed the lives within the Mack family of Horry County. Stephanie, 26, became involved with Special Olympics around 2008, and has competed in several sports such as aquatics, bocce, bowling, athletics, and tennis.
Over the past four years, Stephanie has become extremely interested in improving her skills in tennis. She is strong willed and always determined to better her scores from the previous practice, match, or tournament. This dedication and perseverance granted her the opportunity to attend the 2014 USA Games in New Jersey this past June, and the 2014 Special Olympics North America National Tennis Championship just a few days ago. Both of these experiences were a dream come true for Stephanie.
