Four Chase County Special Olympics team members are honing their basketball skills prior to a tournament in Mitchell March 15.
Coached by Matt and Tanna Hanna, the four practice also with SO leaders Tom and Stephanie Rau, and Nickolas and Noah Rau every Thursday night at Chase County Schools.
Stephanie Rau said that since the athletes are “pretty new to the game we are not going to be participating in the basketball game in the tournament. However, we would like to participate in the team skills and individual games.”
Dustin Holmes, Nathanael Rau, Isaiah Christensen and Eddie Lopez are participating in this winter sport.
Spring games are scheduled for March 28-30 in Lincoln, and will include athletes from this area in both bowling and basketball.
