The annual Special Olympic basketball tournament took place on April 28, 2017. The staff and trainers traveled to Evanston to play some ball. They all participated and had a good time winning some medals.

Peer trainer sophomore Millie Merritt said, “I loved playing with the Sped team. It was very enjoyable because they treated it like a fun activity instead of a high emotion and competitive competition. Nobody got mad at each other or the other team for bad passes or missed shots. It was just smiles all around.”

Peer trainer Kambel Jenkins commented, “It was definitely a good time. The environment was great, but my favorite part was that I made a ton of new friends and new friendships that will last a lifetime. If anyone ever had the opportunity to be a trainer, I would strongly encourage them to take it.”
