Four Qualify for State Speech

Story image 1_0

The District C1-6 Speech Meet was held in Gering on Monday, March 11th.  Ainsworth qualified 4 team members for the State Speech Meet in Kearney.


“We went into districts this year not really knowing what we would be facing.  With so many meets canceled due to weather, we weren’t able to see much of our competition.  I was very happy with the results.  Our seniors had good success, and those novices are proving that they will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.”


Sam, Jenna, Adriana, and Alyssa will compete at the NSAA State Speech Championships next Thursday, March 21, on the University of Nebraska-Kearney campus with rounds beginning at 8:30 am.
