The Wilsonville High School unified soccer team finished off their season with a wonderful showing at the Special Olympics State Games at Providence Park on Saturday. It was great for the players (and coaches and fans) to be on the Timbers' home field for a fun day of competition. The team took 2nd place overall - and received the Sportsmanship Award!
Here's a video clip from Fox 12's Oregon Sports Final featuring several Wilsonville student-athletes (and some lively fans!).
Big thanks to James Shishido and Bryn Card for coaching the WHS team this season, and to Cheri Canfield and Scott Archer for coaching the team at Arts & Technology High School. These teams have had a significant impact on the individual participants and by bringing together students with and without disabilities on the same playing field they have played an important role in furthering our goal of creating inclusive cultures!
Every year Stand for Children Oregon awards several $10,000 college scholarships at our annual Beat the Odds Scholarship Awards & Fundraising Luncheon in Portland, and at a reception in Eugene.
