The Hope School Falcons are the 2019 State Special Olympics Basketball Champions. This is seventh time the Falcons have claimed the championship. Hope School is home to nine state championships.
The Falcons swept through the tournament, taking game one on Friday before winning it all in game two with a 38-22 win. This gave the Falcons back-to-back state champions, having captured the championship in 2018.
Hope School didn’t stop with a state championship but had four place in the skills team competition. Nick and Devin received a gold medal. Isaac received a silver while Hunter received a bronze.
The faculty and staff of Hope School will be hosting a celebration at Hope School recognizing these athletes, cheerleaders, coaches and sponsors at 10:00 a.m. Friday.
