Special Olympics Unified Basketball Tournament Promotes Inclusion
Yesterday, the Schools Partnership Program united Wilcox and Santa Clara High School students, with and without disabilities, through sports to promote inclusion, acceptance and respect for all individuals. The student-run Best Buddies Clubs organized the event. Members of the varsity girls basketball teams officiated the games, and cheerleaders and mascots kept the crowd energized. The tournament was sponsored by Special Olympics Northern California, Santa Clara Unified School District and the Santa Clara Police and Fire Departments.
