West Holt Speech Invitational

Story image 1_0

The West Holt Speech Invitational was held on Saturday, February 2nd.  “We had a good day at West Holt’s meet.  Obviously, the novices were very successful.  The coaches are all proud of the progress they’ve made and the hard work they’ve put in at practice.  It showed on Saturday when they brought home the championship plaque," commented Coach Mary Rau.   “The varsity also had good results.  Our OID and Adriana Hood in Informative have medaled at every meet so far, and Seniors Jenna Williams and Henry Beel are hitting their competitive strides as well as growing in their leadership roles for the rest of the team.  We’re going to take the momentum we gained at West Holt and finish the second half of the season strong.”


The next speech competition takes the team to North Platte High School on Saturday, February 9, with rounds beginning at 8:30 am.
