Unified Sports Update

Well, it seems the snow finally stopped and we may have a bit of a warm spell this week! The snow sure looks beautiful but the temperatures were way too cold for me.

I just wanted to share an update with you all regarding our Unified Sports. As you remember, last year our District joined the inaugural year for Unified Sport in Section III. The basketball program was wonderful for all involved; even the spectators.

This year Mr. Burns our Athletic Director has worked to add a Unified Sports Bowling team to our District. We are excited to have this available for all of our 9-12 grade students starting this month with basketball to follow once the bowling season is done in early April.

Here are the details for the Unified  Sports Bowling team. You can register for the team on the Athletics webpage from the District site. If you have any questions regarding the Unified Sports Program, please contact Mike Burns, Athletic Director at 315-487-4560.
