Repmo Special Olympics at Indoor State Games

The Republic Special Olympics squad is in St. Joseph for the Indoor State Games, and we’re following along with updates all weekend, courtesy of our sponsor Southern Sun Electric.


Update: Basketball competition has begun. We have lots more photos from the Indoor State Games in our gallery below. In Individual Skills, Christopher Travis grabbed gold; Chris Lawrence, silver; Dougie Kies, bronze. Brenton Blakemore and Abby Couch also won gold, and Ella McBroom a bronze.

In Bowling, Brenton Blakemore nabbed a gold medal, and Evin Sparkman and Ryan Leiser have silver medals so far. We’ll keep you posted and have more photos as we get them.
