NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. --  The New Rochelle Special Olympics Team recently concluded a successful soccer season, and this month has begun competing in floor hockey.

The team's home-floor hockey games will be played on Jan. 31 and Feb. 7 at Isaac E. Young Middle School, and on April 5 at New Rochelle High School.

The team's soccer season ended with a 3-1 victory over Ardsley on Wednesday, Dec. 14, bringing its final record to five wins, two losses and one draw.

One of the goals in the final game was a rebound scored by Thiago Reche after a shot by Kyle Fitzpatrick. This season's top scorers were Alyssa Padilla, Victor Castellanos and Kenny Jaramillo.

The team competes in the Public School Sports-based Pioneer League against Mamaroneck, White Plains, Port Chester and other Westchester County schools. Each year, students play a full season of soccer, floor hockey, basketball and volleyball.

At the end of the school year, student athletes gather for a night of dinner and dancing held at one of the participating schools.

There are currently 40 student athletes playing for New Rochelle - 30 high school students and 10 middle school students.
