TIGARD, Ore. — For the first time ever, Tigard High School put a unified soccer team on the field.

Special Olympics Unified Sports are gaining a lot of momentum. In Special Olympics, unified sports people with and without intellectual disabilities play time on the same team.

Sela Brazier, a student at Tigard High School, gave up her senior year of track and field to start the unified soccer team.

Brazier said she “wanted to make some kind of difference at Tigard High this year.”

The Tigard team played unified teams from other high schools.

The OSAA is very interested in unified sports. Their goal is to have state championships in unified basketball and soccer in the next three to five years.

You can learn more about unified sports on the Special Olympics website.
