On November 12th, a few principals and coaches volunteered to play a friendly game of basketball against the Rolling Rams, a team whose players are all in wheelchairs. The Lindbergh staff who played against them consisted of the girls and boys basketball coaches, as well as a few principals.
“It was really done for two reasons: to have some fun and to help raise money for a wheelchair basketball team. It was a great opportunity to show people that people with disabilities are very capable of many things,” said Eric Cochran, Assistant Coach of Varsity Boys Basketball.
To even the playing field and make the game more interesting, the Lindbergh staff team also had to be in wheelchairs. Interestingly, this was the first time that they had ever played basketball in wheelchairs.
“There was no practice for us, we just showed up and started playing,” said Cochran.
The event raised $345 and 370 cans of canned food. An enjoyable time was had and as for the winners of the game?
“The Rolling Rams beat us really bad,” said Wolfard.
