The Colorado Rapids’ Special Olympics Unified Team concluded their preseason play last night at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park with an impressive victory over a strong Colorado Rapids’ Front Office and Soccer Operations team. The contest, the second of two friendlies that the Unified Team has hosted since it was formed this past July and August, took place on the first team’s training pitch before a crowd of supportive spectators.

The Rapids’ Unified Special Olympics Team is represented by athletes Mackenzie Beauvais-Niki, Ulysses Hernandez, Aiden Ramirez, Colton Rice, Arturo Lopez, Scotty Stephens, Zech Steinmetz, Rylan Krems, Michael Bush, and Luke Davidson.
