This last Saturday, WSHS took two teams of Players (gen – ed students) and Athletes (special education students) to the King County Special Olympics District soccer tournament. Our “Player Development” team (more disabled, more playing for fun and modified competition) took the SILVER MEDAL losing to Mercer Island in a double overtime situation.
Our “Division 1” team (less disabled, more varsity-like competition) took the GOLD MEDAL beating Chief Sealth 3-1 – this allows our D-1 team to move on to the Washington State Special Olympics Championship Games, vying for an opportunity to take first place in the whole state.More ›
