The Special Olympics High School Basketball team left it all on the floor today! After a tough game, we came home with Silver, losing to The Edwardsville. We couldn’t be prouder of the team for all of their incredible hard work and dedication to themselves but more importantly their team mates! Freshman, Connor Fay was awarded the Player of the Game from the Officials!
