CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Croton-Harmon High School varsity basketball players and coaches hosted the fifth annual Challengers Basketball Clinic.

The Challengers Basketball Clinic brings together coaches and players from the high school with players with physical and mental challenges once a year.

Challengers experienced how the Croton-Harmon team warms up, stretches and practices skills and drills, while the varsity players gained awareness, confidence and understanding in working with individuals with special challenges.

All 22 Challengers received a medal and t-shirt at the end of the program.

Croton-Harmon seniors Evan and Jared Douglas created the Challengers Basketball Clinic as a way to make a difference in the community and work with special needs kids.

Supporting their efforts were Mark Duncan of the Croton Department of Recreation, coaches Bill Thom and Joe Streany, Croton-Harmon School District Athletic Director Thomas Cunningham, Mark Franzoso and the CHHS Booster Club.

After the seniors graduate, sophomores Vinny DeIngeniis, Matt Cestone and Walker Young will continue the clinic.
