FRAMINGHAM – The first-ever Framingham High unified basketball team home game was held yesterday, October 17, before a standing room only crowd at Framingham High.
The Flyers were seeking their first win of the season, having lost to Newton North in the home opener.
Unfortunately, the Flyers lost to the Lions of Newton South High 41-28.
Framingham is such a wonderful community! Got to experience some of the best of the city today – from 200 volunteers building a playground in District 9 this morning to the first-ever home game of the unified basketball team at Framingham High this afternoon. SOURCE will have photos of both posted soon. – Susan.

The team is now 0-2, under head coach Mike Tarlin.
This is the first year for the unified program at Framingham High.
A unified basketball program joins students with and without disabilities on the same team.
In Special Olympics, unified sports programs, teams are made up of co-ed students of similar age and ability.
Framingham High will host the Tigers of Newton North High on Monday, October 22 at 4 p.m. at Framingham High.
