Boosting School Pride and Opportunity

LINGANORE, Md. -- Linganore High School students showcased their Lancer pride on Monday by wearing their school sports jerseys to school.
One group of students in the sea of red and white were also able to wear their own athletic uniforms for Spirit Week, a feat not possible just a few years ago before the Unified Sports Tennis Team was founded.
It was a big deal for Sarah Webber, a 15-year-old freshman in the Learning for Life special education program at the school, but also a school athlete in her first year as a tennis player.
New Market resident Monique Webber, Sarah's mom said she was excited to be on the team.
"It makes her feel really good and part of the school, you know?" Webber said, adding that participation in the school's Spirit Week activity on Monday was important. "...she had a jersey to wear."
