The Glasgow High School Speech and Drama Team competed at the Montana Class B-C Forensic Meet in Huntley Project on Friday and Saturday. The Scotties qualified 11 competitors for state competition with eight competing in semi-finals and five standing on the podium at the end of the meet.
The Montana Class B-C Forensic Meet finds the best six competitors from each of the three B-C Divisions competing in all 15 speech, drama and debate events; that is a total of 18 competing in four preliminary rounds. Twelve qualify to continue into semi-finals with eight facing off in the final round. Glasgow students who came home with medals gave their speech or performed their piece six times in the two-day tournament.
Placing in Drama were Hailey Stone, fourth in Serious Solo, Bridger Sanders, fourth in Pantomime, and Morgan Miller, seventh in Pantomime. Also earning points for the Scotties by competing in semi-finals were Kat Geer and Amanda Kresal in Serious Duo.
Placing in Speech were Rachael Zeiger, sixth in Impromptu Speaking and Dakota Buerman, seventh in Original Oratory. Also earning points for the Scotties were Rachel Overby, who competed in semi-finals in Extemporaneous Speaking and Ethan Jamba, who took first in one preliminary round of Serious Oral Interpretation (SOI) of Literature. Also competing at this meet were Karissa Liebelt in Impromptu Speaking and Sija Laffin in SOI.
Coach John LaBonty said the coaches are proud of our time – they competed very well especially due to the limited number of meets during the regular season. The team was comprised from a lot of first-year Speech and Drama kids, which means next year the team should be very strong.
The season ends with the awards dinner for Speech & Drama, which is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 7.
