EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. — It was an exciting day for special education students and their peers in Monroe County on Monday.
Unified track regionals were held virtually at East Stroudsburg South High School. Each school participates at their own school, records the scores, and adds them to a spreadsheet to determine the winners.
It's an opportunity for young athletes with and without disabilities to compete with one another on the varsity level.
"You couldn't have asked for a better group of kids to be together. It's all about removing labels and everybody being on the same team together to promote total inclusion. And this group that came together this year is absolutely amazing," said Aimee Ellison with East Stroudsburg South High School.
Students completed in relay, shot put, standing long jump, and more in Monroe County.
