Great Athletes Learning From Each Other

EDISON — The Middlesex County College men’s basketball team was recently honored by the New Jersey Hawks, an athletic program for young adults with developmental disabilities. The MCC team ran a workshop during the season, in which they taught dribbling, passing and shooting skills.

In May, the Hawks returned to the campus to present awards to the MCC squad: autographed team photos. The MCC team also conducted a brief clinic and ran a scrimmage.
