WILMINGTON, North Carolina – The wind and a four-run deficit weren’t enough to keep UNCW (6-13) from sweeping the Cougars (3-17) at Boseman Field over the weekend.

UNCW took the series with two wins in a Saturday doubleheader, winning 6-3, and 2-1. The Seahawks were forced to rally in Sunday’s game after falling behind 5-1 after the first three innings.

Millions of people globally have been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, also known as CP.CP is a spectrum, meaning every diagnosis is different in terms of how the individual is affected. CP is primarily caused by a lack of oxygen just before, during, or after birth. This deprivation of oxygen results in irreversible damage to the part of the brain that controls the person’s motor functions and often experiences stiffness of the muscle tone. This muscle stiffness can impact every inch of one’s body. The type of CP that I have is called quadriplegic spastic, which simply means it affects all four limbs of my body. Since today is national cerebral palsy awareness day, I am going to explain how it affects me in my everyday life and how it in extension affects my academic career and social life at UNCW.
