TGIF – Tri-Valley Basketball Style

By Anna Oleson-Wheeler

A recent Friday at Pleasanton Middle School was definitely the best day of the week as 200 student-athletes participated in a Special Olympics Northern California Schools Partnership Program basketball competition! Middle and high schools from the Tri-Valley area made their way to Pleasanton Middle School, which was hosting its first secondary competition. Classes from the Dublin, Livermore Valley, Pleasanton, school districts and the Alameda County Office of Education played spirited basketball games after spending weeks training on their respective campuses. Some of the classes played on their own, and some of the classes had parent, teacher or general education peer partners to help guide the students receiving special education services. To see what the very best parts of this basketball competitions were, click below.
