Ben Medina was named the Special Olympics Athlete of the Month at Monday’s Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon at Harry’s Plaza Cafe.
Ben attends Carpinteria Middle School and excels at bowling and golf. Medina is a big sports fan in general, especially of NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson.
Ben’s coach Aaron Brown has seen him improve his bowling lately, noticing that Ben has “turned his spares into strikes.”
Parents Jennifer and David were in attendance to see Ben receive his award at the podium from Brown at Round Table President Rich Hanna.
