The North Naples Middle School team members missed their chance to unload props when one of their teammates fell unconscious in the campus swimming pool and needed to be rushed to the hospital. The Penn State team rescued them by volunteering to help move and lift the heavy props. These “big brothers” adopted the North Naples team by watching its performance and enthusiastically supporting the team throughout the week.
