Strong performances that earned points toward sweepstakes were also turned in by senior Janine Chalmers, third in Humorous Solo; sophomore Haylee Safranski, second in Pantomime; and sophomore Kyle Cook, eighth in Serious Solo. Valuable experiences was gained by sophomores Amanda McDonald and Paige Schmitt, who competed in Humorous Duo.
Only three GHS students competed this week in Speech, but two earned points for their team. Junior Dakota Buerman took third in Original Oratory while sophomore Sija Laffin placed eighth in Serious Oral Interpretation of Literature. Sophomore Kat Geer also gained valuable experience, competing in Humorous Oral Interpretation
The Glasgow team will be leaving at noon on Thursday to compete in the Montana State B-C Forensic Meet on the MSU-B campus in Billings. This two-day meet brings the top six finishers in each of the 15 events from the three divisions together in competition.
