Randolph High School hosted a Unified Special Olympic basketball tournament this morning with Cranford, Union City, and Trenton. It was by far one of the best athletic events I have attended all year.
Play Unified gives our special athletes an opportunity to compete with their general education peers and to watch the interactions between and among the players is truly heartwarming.
This was the first time that our team competed in basketball and they were outstanding. While according to the scoreboard they did not win, the expressions on their faces while playing and scoring baskets evidenced the great time they had competing ~ they were definitely winners in my book.
Tomorrow they will be competing in the Shriver Cup Bowling tournament in New Brunswick ~ good luck to our athletes!!
