RINDGE, N.H. (March 12, 2018) – The Franklin Pierce University women’s basketball program spent this past Saturday at the Special Olympics Unified Sports Basketball Assessment Tournament in nearby Keene, N.H.
More than 40 teams attended to play preliminary games before heading to the state tournament which takes place in Derry, N.H. this coming April. The girls assisted by refereeing games, keeping score and evaluating various teams and skill levels for the upcoming tourney.
“We were extremely excited and thankful to have had the opportunity to help Special Olympics New Hampshire,” said head coach Jeanette Wedo. “The athletes involved were tremendous competitors who were a joy to work with! Not only did we get to help out in the sport we love, but we had the opportunity to meet and support amazing people.”
