When the Wild West Super Kids Soapbox Derby was held in Ogallala May 3, two young men from Imperial made their debut.
In a separate division for youth ages 7-17 with disabilities, Nathanael Rau and Isaiah Christensen represented the Chase County Special Olympics team.
The youth were paired up with experienced soapbox race drivers, who also provided the cars.
Nathanael received a first place trophy and Isaiah received a second place trophy.
The Chase County Special Olympics team was formed last fall. Members competed in bowling and basketball. More sports will be added as coaches are available.
