Needham High School's Lauren Tarlow was recently named the MIAA's Unified Track and Field Coach of the Year.
The news was announced by the Needham High School Athletics Twitter account on June 25.
All athletes should be allowed the chance to compete, and that is the exact mission of Unified Sports and the Special Olympics. 2020 was just Tarlow's third year at the helm for Needham Unified track and field since the program's inception in 2018. Clearly, Tarlow and Needham High School are building something special with the program.
