students and coaches of the unified bowling team pose for a picture

Rossville High School and St. Marys High School students wrapped up their first season of Unified Bowling on November 8, 2022. Twenty-two students combined from Rossville High School and St. Marys High School to compete in this new Kansas State High School Activities Association sport.

The purpose of unified sports is a dedication to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports® joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. Having sports in common is just one way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.
