KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Athletes at East Noble High School are coming together for a 'Unified" Track Team.

The team is made up of 12 students, six of which have mental disabilities. The team, which must be evenly balanced, is practicing to compete against nine other schools in the state championship this weekend. The Special Olympics provided grants to schools to help with the start up costs of creating Unified sports teams.
