The 2014 Special Olympics U.S. Games are underway in Newark, New Jersey, and a local team secured a silver medal.
On-air personality Katy Dempsey from sister station Candy 95 is a player on local flag football team, the Goose Bombers.
She says the preparation for nationals was intense, as the team practiced twice a week and were the team to beat going into the final medal round.
