Congratulations to our Latham Hawks basketball players and coaches

The Latham Hawks basketball team finished their season Saturday at the Special Olympics basketball tournament at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center. The team showed great teamwork, kept up their energy, and all remained positive while playing. The team even had a special cheering section including Latham Centers President Anne McManus, Children’s Program Director Gerry Pouliot, Physical Therapist Julie Edwards, and a few parents!

Head Coach Iesha Askew said the students exhibited determination throughout the season. “In the beginning of the season, we started out with some students who hadn’t played, some who had, and some who knew for sure this was the sport for them. As the season went on, we of course lost a few players here and there. However, there were students who didn’t believe they could make it and not only did they, but they killed it!”
