In a packed North Shore High School gymnasium, the 2nd Annual Life Skills Basketball Game vs. Locust Valley took place on March 26, 2024.

From the opening tip off, the basketball game was action packed as the Locust Valley Falcons got off to an early lead against the Vikings. To the cheering of the enthusiastic North Shore crowd, the Vikings came back to tie it up! But, in the final minutes of the game the Falcons rallied to narrowly win the game!

On the court, both teams showed sportsmanship and teamwork – passing the ball to their teammates, high-fiving one another, and allowing everyone to take a shot and participate in the fun! At the completion of the game, both teams lined up to congratulate one another!

Many thanks to the Special Education departments and Athletic departments of both the North Shore School District and Locust Valley for organizing this exciting game! The audience was filled with not only high school students but younger children from Sea Cliff School who made signs to cheer for their older peers! At the end of the game, all of the Viking basketball players handed their younger peers mini-basketballs and thanked them for coming out to support them!

In addition, thank you to all the high school administrators, faculty members, SEPTA organization, family members, and high school students who not only assisted in the game, but cheered on the teams and players, were referees and announced the game, and actively participated in this fun and heartwarming event. We look forward to next year! Go Vikings Go!
