A team of sixteen students from the district participated in the annual Nassau County Empire State Games for the Physically Challenged held at Mitchel Field this spring. Referred to as the Victory Challenge, students were teamed with a buddy and participated in various track and field challenges such as discus throwing, 400-meter races and distance kick. Each team member participates in five different field events throughout the day and has the opportunity to earn first- through fifth-place for each one. The team is coached by district physical therapist Dana Franklin and occupational therapist Tara Lynch.
