Folsom H.S. just completed their second season of Unified Basketball. Unified Basketball is a mix of general ed and special ed students that promotes inclusiveness. It is also a coed program. The program is coached by teachers, Zoe Samborski and Lisa Finley and student coach, Isabelle Becerra. The team holds practices and competes in games on Basketball game nights just prior to the boys Varsity game. This year we played Granite Bay’s Unified Basketball team, both at home and away. We also played some games vs our own U.S. team. As more schools add Unified Sports, we plan to play more teams each year.
As you may have seen in an earlier posting, our U.S. team competed in Soccer in the fall. Now they are moving on to Track and Field. With Track and Field, they will compete in the 100m run, the 4 x 100 relay and the long jump. The students practice with our traditional Track and Field team and compete at actual meets. This will also be our second season.
