FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Special Olympics team is taking home 25 medals after a week of competition at the USA Games in New Jersey.

WDAY-TV (https://bit.ly/V1Qbnv ) reports the team won 10 gold, 4 silver and 11 bronze medals.

The station reports some of the athletes set personal best records throughout the week.

About 3,500 athletes are descended on New Jersey for the games, along with 10,000 volunteers and 1,000 coaches.

The Special Olympics traces its history to the 1960s and has mostly been a state-level staple in the U.S. The 2014 USA Games are the third nationwide competition, following previous U.S. games hosted by Iowa in 2006 and Nebraska in 2010.
