Minden Speech Team Starts Season Strong

The Minden Speech team started their season on January 7 at the Adams Central Invite.

“It was a great day for our kids to get their feet wet and start to firm up their events. I am confident that all our speakers improved greatly across the day! We did face some tough competition, one school has been going to meets for six weeks already, and we held our own quite well,” Coach Jeffrey Horner said.

The Whippets placed six varsity events and two novice events at the meet. Medal winners were: Grace Lee, Varsity Humorous Prose, 2nd Place; Danica Schoone, Novice Entertainment, 4th Place; Dawson Conyers, Addison Klabunde, Sophia Cederburg, and Hallee Schoone, Varsity OID, 4th Place; Evan Porter, Varsity Informative, 5th Place; Grace Lee, Varsity Serious Prose, 5th Place; Emory Porter, Novice Poetry, 6th Place; Nathan Althouse, Varsity Entertainment, 6th Place; and Evan Porter, Varsity Persuasive, 6th Place.
