Brunswick, Maine Action Team captains joined their special needs classmates on the court this winter to form a juggernaut Unified Basketball team.

In Unified Sports, people with and without developmental disabilities train and compete together to foster fun, friendship and understanding.

Four of the Action Team captains played on the court, one assisted the program off the court and another served as assistant coach.

Competing against unified teams from surrounding towns, Brunswick went undefeated until losing by two points in the regional semi-finals.

The Action Team captains also held a shooting competition along with faculty members to raise money for the team’s end-of-the-year party.
