The Sentinel: Rangeview Unified soccer team nets spot with Rapids

Members of Rangeview High School's Unified soccer team.

Story excerpt:

"The rewards for those involved in Unified Sports are plentiful, but the Rangeview Unified soccer team has truly hit the jackpot.

The Colorado Rapids approached the program recently to represent the Major League Soccer franchise on a local and national level.

Rangeview Unified coach Kaly Warner and her team couldn’t believe their good fortune.

'When the Rapids asked us, it was so awesome and we were like ‘What, are you talking to us?' Warner said with a smile.

'We just started this Unified program at Aurora Public Schools three years ago, so to be recognized already after a short time and have Special Olympics respect us enough to ask us to do this is such an honor. We’re really, really excited.'"
