MONTROSE -

An action-packed basketball game had boys and girls with and without disabilities facing off on the court at Hendrick Hudson High School.

"It's girls and boys and everyone's playing together. We're all having fun, it's really an amazing experience," says Hudson High School senior Joe Fareed.

The game was tied at 41-41 between Hendrick Hudson High School and Pelham High School, when Fareed got the ball back and passed it to Hudson freshman Nick Hun, who made the three-pointer and won the game for his school.

But while both boys are happy with the win, creating moments like these for these students is most important.

"I want to inspire them to play basketball," says Hun.
