As the entire Sleepy Hollow High School Pioneer team for special athletes continues to be recognized locally for its hard work and sportsmanship, several team members are currently taking advantage of exciting opportunities through the Special Olympics.
The most recent honor has been bestowed upon Felix Veloz who was chosen to be a part of the NBA Cares Unified Special Olympics Game in Madison Square Garden on February 14. The application process was very competitive, and fellow SHHS student Danny Elia created a highlight reel for Veloz to submit with his application.
Halfway through the season, the Sleepy Hollow boys’ varsity basketball team is flourishing due to Coach Chris Starace’s guidance in his inaugural season. With a 10-3 record, and in contention for a league title, the squad is preparing for a strong playoff run.
The players and starting lineups change every season, but what remains consistent with the Irvington High School girls’ basketball team is winning results.
