 More than a 120 students lined the lanes at a Belmont Lanes bowling alley in Bristol, TN.

The special education students didn't spare one moment of having fun during the first annual Adaptive Bowling tournament.

Tennessee High School sponsored the event, and Virginia High, Abingdon High, Sullivan East, Sullivan South, EB Stanley Middle, Vance Middle, Virgina Middle, Anderson Elementary, and Holston View Elementary schools all participated.

"We've been fundraising for it all fall, and so they knew it was something that may be a possibility," said event organizer Miller Foutch. "And so it's them talking about it, and getting excited about it...and watching how good of a time they're having - it makes it all worth it."

Event organizers said every student walked away with a participation medal in today's tournament.
Tennessee High School will host an Adaptive Swimming event in the spring.
