North Atlanta High's Special Olympics Unified Basketball Team won the silver medal in state championship competition last weekend in Marietta, according to an APS announcement.
The team is coached by Lisa Oglesby, who teaches moderately intellectually disbabled students at the high school, and Nic Hill. Regina Gennaro, Special Olympics liaison for APS, helped form the group.
Half of the unified team was Special Olympiads and the other half their peer partners.
"Ms. Oglesby has had and continues to have several peer leaders wanting to work with her students," the announcement said. "Her students have many opportunities to work and play with their peers."
