The Hampton Bays High School Baymen and the Southampton High School Mariners, in conjunction with the Special Olympics, cooperatively recently hosted a unified basketball tournament at Hampton Bays High School.
The annual tournament gave Special Olympic athletes the opportunity to play alongside varsity athletes in eight-minute games. The evening included 54 players, team uniforms, referees, cheerleaders, a play-by-play announcer, coaches and many supporting spectators. In addition to the game, the event also served as a food and winter coat drive. Participants and spectators were encouraged to bring items to donate.
