Ravens in the Community: Women’s Basketball Volunteers at Special Olympics of New Hampshire for Second Straight Year

RINDGE, N.H. (March 12, 2019) – Franklin Pierce University women's basketball head coach Jeanette McKillop and her team spent this past Saturday at the Special Olympics of New Hampshire Unified Basketball Assessment and Individual Skills in Keene, N.H.

It was the second consecutive year the Ravens participated in this good cause. Members of the women's basketball program assisted with refereeing, coaching, and timekeeping to provide the athletes with a competitive experience before state competition later this month.

"We had the opportunity to work with over a hundred athletes from various areas and basketball clubs in New Hampshire," said coach McKillop. "It was the second year in a row we have been involved with Special Olympics New Hampshire and it was a great experience to work with such passionate and dedicated athletes."
