As our swim team heads out for the first tournament of the 2016-17 sports season, NYI held a pep rally to support them and all our Athletic Teams. We have teams competing in cheerleading, basketball, bowling, wrestling, track and field and goalball.

The theme for the event was "Each Star has a Superhero Inside". Students were encouraged to come dressed as their favorite superhero. They had a great time showing off their costumes.

The event ended with a series of challenges for the staff and students. The challenges included two coaches competing in a cup stacking contest and some of the younger students playing "Catch the Joker".

We wish our swim team GOOD LUCK this weekend in the Eastern Athletics Association for the Blind Tournament at the Overbrook School for the Blind in Philadelphia.
