MuhlBox: Special Swishes
Members of the Muhlenberg men's and women's basketball teams held a practice for Special Olympics athletes
Members of the Muhlenberg men’s and women’s basketball teams stepped onto the court last Wednesday as they have hundreds of times in their careers. This time, however, it wasn’t with the goal of defeating an opponent – it was to run a practice for their favorite sport with Special Olympics athletes from the Lehigh Valley.
This is the second year in a row that the team has participated in the event, which is held at Trexler Middle School.
“The Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) wanted to do more stuff with the Special Olympics this year,” said senior Kate Clawson, who is a committee member. “We helped them organize the Lehigh Valley Polar Bear Plunge and wanted to continue our involvement with the organization.”
