Unified basketball players running on the court

Yesterday was the first Cape Elizabeth Unified Basketball game. They played against Old Orchard Beach and came away with a win, 46-30. The team included 7 players and 2 partners. It was a great team effort and they all displayed great sportsmanship, good defense, rebounding and shooting. One of the OOB coaches remarked how pleased and proud he was of Cape's display of sportsmanship, especially of the two partners Nathan Ashe and Alex Brooking. With the partners tiring, Coach Boeckel gave them a much deserved rest on the bench and switched out the players, Madison Mills, Allison Brooking, Vai Monaghan, Emily Whalen, Cole Gray Evan Zack and Henry Adams for team play. They rose to the occasion and handled both ends of the court with finesse and great ball skills. We are looking forward to our next away game with Greely on February 14. Our first home game is February 29 against Brunswick. Hope you can make it.
