    Cherokee High School

    Cherokee's Senior class hosted their infamous Mr. Cherokee competition. The night is always so memorable for the contestants and the audience. The winter sports season is nearing an end and Cherokee’s basketball teams, swim teams and wrestling team have had amazing seasons. But what has really brought the school together has been the unified basketball team, Chiefs United. The games have been standing room only, filled with lots of energy. CBS attended one of the previous games to film a segment on the program!

    Seneca High School

    Two senior football players officially signed to play Division 1 football, one at Sacred Heart University and the other at The University of Pennsylvania. Girls basketball, boys basketball and wrestling recently hosted their Senior Nights to honor their senior athletes. Each night was bittersweet for the families, fans and the players. Finally, they had their home unified basketball game against Shawnee during the school day! Swoop, the Eagles Mascot, attended the game and had a pre-game dance party with the teams! Drew Lanzidelle, one of the Seneca unified athletes, was honored for scoring 500 points, making him the first Unified Athlete to accomplish this amazing milestone at Seneca. This basketball game was truly the best day of the year.
