This week’s Bowie’s Best Athlete of the Week is Timothy Hickmott, of New Boston. Timothy is an incoming senior at New Boston High School and first time competitor in the 2023 Special Olympics games. He participates in the 50 meter dash and the softball throw in the spring games and will be playing for the softball team in the fall. As the middle of three brothers, his mom describes the 17-year-old as the “class clown.” She says he is always trying to make people laugh with a prank or joke. Before moving to New Boston, Timothy and his family lived in West Texas where his mom homeschooled the three boys. Timothy says he is excited about returning to the games next year to see the new friends he made and winning more medals.
