A Shout Out to all our HS scholar-athletes from the Girls, Boys and Unified sports Basketball programs from Stamford High and Westhill High for participating in the recent MLK celebration event, sponsored by the Stamford Chapter of the NAACP! The game brought big crowds and solid game play to the Kuzco Gymnasium. The Unified Sports Basketball squads from both high schools came prepared and ready to compete. SHS jumped to an early lead and was controlling the tempo, but WHS made a late 2nd half push to secure a tie game! Congratulations to all athletes and coaches involved!
