Dribble, shoot, score

2013 was a wonderful and successful year for New Avenues Special Olympics Basketball Team.  The athletes practiced every Tuesday and Thursday evening in January, February and March to prepare for this year’s tournament.  The basketball players worked on the passing, shooting and dribbling skills throughout the season.  New Avenues had 10 athletes participate in the North Section Individual Skill Basketball Tournament at Lorain County Community College on Saturday, March 3.  All 10 athletes qualified and competed in the State 
Individual Skills Basketball Competition on Saturday, March 23 in Columbus.  The athletes enjoyed a fun and exciting weekend in Columbus and had a successful competition.  New Avenues is grateful to all the Special Olympics coaches that helped throughout the season: Mark Carden, Gretchen Halliday, Tom Hlavin, Andy Lukcso, Cristin Lukcso and Kristi Svejkovsky.
