The unified track teams from Auburn and Hudson participated in a meet last Thursday with the assistance of the Auburn track & field team and coaches. Participants competed in the shot put, javelin, long jump and numerous races. Although there is no declared winner in unified track, times and distances are logged to qualify individuals for future competition.
Kathleen Lutz is the coach for Auburn’s new program, and she said 31 students are participating this fall. Patti Doherty, Massachusetts Special Olympics Manager of Youth Engagement and Schools, was also on hand for the event. Doherty said having 31 students on board for a first year program was fantastic.
