Saturday, January 13th, the Ainsworth Speech Team opened their season at the Valentine Ice Breaker. “Although we took a limited number of entries to Valentine, we did fairly well,” stated Coach Mary Rau. “That shows we’re on the right track. It’s early in the season, and we’re still developing our team and presentations, but at this point, I think we have great potential.”
The next competition for the speech team will be in Broken Bow on Saturday, January 20, with rounds beginning at 8 am.
