An Inclusive Litany

3/15/02

In Massachusetts, Rhonda Hennessy and Andy Williams filed a lawsuit against the Wakefield Basketball Association for refusing to allow their son, eight-year-old Colm Williams, to play because he is confined to a wheelchair. The WBA actually has a Challenger League geared for children with mental and physical handicaps, but according to the Boston Globe, the parents "said their son doesn't want to play in that league because the children are much older and he would miss the camaraderie of being on a team with his classmates."
