THREE Highlands athletes are competing in the Special Olympics National Games this week.

Aidan Ellis, Cherrie Isbister and Kelsie Waters have been chosen to represent NSW at the games in Melbourne, which began on Monday and conclude tomorrow.

Ellis, Isbister and Waters were selected for the NSW ten pin bowling team.

These athletes have been encouraged and assisted by their coach Diane McAusland.

McAusland has also been selected as assistant coach for the team.

Aidan, who recently turned 16, is one of the youngest competitors at the games.

He has continued to improve his bowling ability in 2014 and Special Olympics Southern Highlands hope he will have a successful week in Melbourne.

Special Olympics Southern Highlands' major sponsors include the Kollege of Knowledge Kommittee for Kids (KKKK), which covered the entire cost for Aidan.

Interchange Australia is a major sponsor for Isbister, who has been a long-time bowler.

Isbister tasted considerable success leading up to the National Games.

Kelsie Waters recently achieved her best bowling scores. She has been competing in Special Olympics for the past 10 years.

Highlands Ten Pin was the other major sponsor.

Special Olympics Southern Highlands is proud to have these three athletes selected for their state.

The organisation thanks the Highlands community for helping to cover the cost of close to $10,000 to get Ellis, Isbister and Waters to the games.
