The Rich Township High School District 227 Special Olympics Team took home the gold on January 24, 2022. Due to the pandemic in 2020, they were unable to compete, but now the Raptors Special Olympics Basketball Team has won their division title again.
Special Olympics Basketball Team Head Coach Kathleen Guitierrez says, ” Two years ago, our ‘OlyRockStars’ basketball team was headed to state for basketball but the pandemic stripped them of this glory. Two years later we were able to begin our basketball season and our Raptors Special Olympics basketball team took home the Gold-winning their division title again. We are headed back to State for the Championship March 11 – 13th!”
Superintendent Johnnie Thomas and all of the faculty and staff of RTHS District 227 are so proud and cheering on the team.
