WATCH: Gorham High School Unified Basketball Highlight Video
I recommend watching if you've had a bad day - it WILL turn it around.
It was so nice to see the proud smiles on the faces of the players and their partners, along with the incredibly warm support of their peers and teachers.
According to the Portland Press Herald there are 55 teams representing 62 schools in a two-region sport that started with 17 teams in one region five years ago. Unified track and field are back this spring for the second year, and Unified volleyball is new this year.
I hope this amazing program grows throughout Maine...it truly is inspiring.
