Frosh Rock As Refs For Special Olympics
Seven freshmen spent yesterday afternoon serving their sport, their school and the entire state.
They volunteered their afternoon 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 Nick Ambrose, Josh Buckman, Brad Cox, Rob Diorio, Andrew Marshall, John-Carter Montoni and Jake Porter, for donating their time and energy to this great cause.
