HHS Students Play in Special Olympics 3v3 Tournament

June 2022
Kudos to Highlands High School students Austin Scott and Carter Anderson for playing in the Special Olympics 3v3 Basketball Tournament at Peters Township High School on Saturday, May 21! They both played hard and showed off their skills -- way to go, boys!
Austin and Carter started preparing for the tournament about eight weeks prior to the event, practicing dribbling, passing, shooting and game play with HHS Varsity basketball players Jocelyn Bielak, Bradyn Foster and Kalleigh Nerone.  
Highlands School District is in the planning stages of teaming up with Special Olympics PA to provide our students with future opportunities to participate in this worthwhile program and the goal of having our own unified team.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this experience possible! R4L
