Sturgeon Bay students won first place in a Special Olympics Regional Basketball Tournament in Sheboygan last weekend. A team of middle school and high school students won both games to claim the regional championship. Middle School Special Education teacher Shannon Wautier says basketball was added this year to the student’s activities.
The Sturgeon Bay students won their first game by three points and won the deciding game by one point on a last-second shot by Nathan Klaubauf. Sturgeon Bay will now travel to Stevens Point for the sectionals on March 19 with the opportunity to go to the State Special Olympics in Oshkosh in April.
