Congratulations to this week’s Showcase Cinemas High School Team of the Week: Rogers High School Boys Cross Country
This week’s spotlight was sent in by Amy Hoag:
Good Sportsmanship/Inclusion: See article from Newport Daily News about Rogers HS boys and girls cross country team helping teammate with autism.
Diagnosed with Autism about 12 years ago, Addison Brooks moved to Newport with his family right before the school year and is enrolled as a freshman at Rogers High School. Vikings cross country coach Charlie Woodward and the other runners on the team have embraced their new teammate this season, and Addison’s dad says that “the way his team includes him, he’s socially developed more in the last three months than he did all of last year.”
Cumulus Media Radio Stations, Showcase Cinemas, & the Rhode Island Interscholastic League congratulate this week’s stand-out team of the week.
Hear the team featured on Cumulus Media radio stations all week during our special on-air features, being played for the hundreds of thousands of local listeners!
