Frosh Rock As Special Olympics Refs
Six freshmen spent yesterday afternoon serving their sport, their school and the entire state.
They volunteered as referees for a Connecticut Special Olympics unified soccer tournament, in the fieldhouse. Every year Staples hosts the event, which draws teenagers with disabilities from dozens of schools. Competition is keen, but smiles are evident everywhere.
It was hard to tell who had more fun: the players, their helpers or the freshman officials.
THANKS to Surya Balaji, Mike Bond, Reed Caney, Haran Eiger, Aidan Middlebrook, Zach Pulichino and Haydn Siroka for donating their time and energy to this great cause.
