Nearly 650 athletes from across the state competed in six sports over the two-day event. Daryl Roberts, DuPont Chief Operations & Engineering Officer, officially launched the Games at the Opening Ceremonies, and over 100 employees from DuPont and Corteva Agriscience volunteered throughout the weekend.
