WCA Speech wraps up regular season tournament

The West Central Area Speech team ended its regular season speech tournament in Osakis on Saturday, March 18.

Kristin Gilbertson in poetry and Emma Saulsbury in storytelling received honorable mentions. Those who received superiors include Max Duncan, humorous; Emily Engen, storytelling; Ava Jahnke, extemporaneous reading; Ethan Olson, original oratory; and Matthew Poyzer, Drama.

Overall, the speech students earned many awards and ribbons throughout the season. "I am very proud of their accomplishments and can't wait to see where the tournament season brings us," advisor Kari Kreft said. "We will be losing some very talented seniors but will be bringing back an amazing core of skilled speakers for next year."

The team will conclude its season with subsections on March 31, followed by sections on April 8, and will strive for state on April 22.
