Members of the Minden Speech Team have sacrificed the luxury of sleeping in on Saturday mornings since second semester began and will continue to dedicate much of their weekends to competitions as the Speech season continues. Early morning travel and after school practices are paying off for the performers as the number of Minden medalists grows with each competition.
The season kicked off on January 11 with the Adams Central meet where competition was fierce. The Minden team received critical feedback on their performances from judges. Earning medals at the competition were Sara Shirley, 3rd, Novice Poetry and Alaina Suchsland and Carson Glenn, 5th, Varsity Duet.
