Students in the Circus Arts/Unicycle program at Lawton Elementary School (4000 27th Ave. W.) and unicyclists from Catharine Blaine K-8 School (2550 34th Ave. W.) combined talents to perform prior to tipoff at the Seattle Storm game against the Tulsa Shock on June 1 in KeyArena.
The students showcased skills in tumbling, unicycle, jump rope, ribbon dancing, globe-ball walking, juggling and other wheeled novelties.
The 45-member group was led by physical education specialists Cheryl Parks (Lawton) and Trina Pickens (Blaine).
Both of these teams are part of the before- and after-school enrichment programs at their respective Magnolia neighborhood schools.
