Several Special Olympic athletes from Imperial competed in the Special Olympics Spring Games in Lincoln the last weekend in March.
Eddie Lopez won a gold medal in his division in basketball, while Nathanael Rau took silver in his division. The two competed in skills and individual games.
Rau also competed in bowling and brought home a bronze medal in his division. Samantha Oxford also competed in bowling, earning a bronze medal in her division.
The Chase County Chapter of Special Olympics was organized last fall. Stephanie and Tom Rau may be contacted for more information.
Several more sports may be added to the roster as the year progresses.
