RHS Unified Basketball Wins Against Visiting Mount Olive
Special Olympics of New Jersey sponsors an opportunity for students with and without disabilities to participate in social activities and athletics. Randolph's inclusive environment has afforded our students a chance to compete in athletic competitions against schools throughout Morris County. Yesterday, Randolph High School Unified Basketball players competed against Mount Olive winning 37 – 24 against the visiting Marauders.
“The energy in the gym yesterday showed that Randolph High School is a place where all are supported and accepted. It was off the charts,” Transition Coordinator Brianne McBreen said. RHS Senior Joseph Hutchinson added, “I really missed playing during the pandemic, the best part of today was taking the W over Mount Olive.”
RHS Senior Michael McKenna really enjoys the opportunity to connect with other students in our Randolph learning community. “Playing with the football guys is great,” Michael said. “I like passing and shooting with them.” RHS Senior Olivia Hull was also excited to have the opportunity to get some playing time again and be with her fellow teammates. “I scored 3 baskets,” Olivia said. “It was great to be back on the court.”
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our Unified Basketball team yesterday, and to Mount Olive for a great game!
