  • More than 100 Special Olympics athletes and their Unified Peers got a chance to show off their hardwood skills Nov. 18 during a basketball competition at Middletown High School.
    The event was one of nine Special Olympics Delaware Basketball Skills Competitions being held throughout the state this month.
    "It's an exciting time of year for anyone playing basketball as seasons get underway and for our athletes, it's no different," said Jon Buzby, a spokesman for Special Olympics Delaware. "These events are their state championship. It's their opportunity to show off their basketball talents through skills events they've been practicing for the past 10 weeks."
    About 80 members of Middletown High's Project UNIFY club also volunteered to help organized the event. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Project UNIFY's goal is to develop school communities where young people are agents of change by fostering respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities.
