DHS students participate in Unified Sports Day

Several students from Decorah High School and Decorah Middle School traveled to Waverly Feb. 10 to participate in Wartburg College’s 25th annual Unified Sports Day through Special Olympics Iowa.

Organizers said the Unified Sports program is a way for Special Olympic athletes to learn new sports skills and participate in games alongside general education students. At this event the Decorah students explored sports they know, including basketball, soccer, baseball, volleyball, and pickleball; as well as sports that were new to them such as golf and bocce ball. Throughout the day, the students rotated through stations with Wartburg students to participate in each of the sports, capping off the day with a Unified Sports basketball game with members of the Wartburg basketball team.
