The Rockland and Abington Unified basketball players treated a large crowd on Monday night in Rockland with a fun-filled game.  The large roster of Rockland girls and boys players battled against Abington’s roster to a 59-46 win for Rockland.  The score was not the story of the game, however. What was the story was the teamwork and togetherness that both groups demonstrated.  There was also a lot of good shooting and defense played.

The unified teams are made up of players from the varsity basketball teams from Rockland and Abington who mentor the players from their schools’ Special Education programs.

This is an event that everyone looks forward to. It is organized by Rockland Athletic Director, Gary Graziano and coached by physical education instructors, Brenda Folsom and Mike Doyle.  For Abington Athletic Director Peter Serino organized the event along with coaches John and Sarah McGinness.
