Sgt. Lake recently made the Special Olympics Texas Unified Basketball Team, which, according to NBC DFW, brings athletes together with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities to “promote inclusion, friendships and most importantly understanding.”

Sgt. Lake and Team Texas traveled to Orlando to compete in the Special Olympics USA Games Unified Basketball Tournament, which included teams from all 50 states and five countries, where they went 4-1 in the tournament, earning the Bronze Medal!

Their only loss came to the eventual champion Team Florida.

Congratulations Sgt. Lake and Team Texas!
