The high school speech team is off to a strong start this season! The growing team began by placing 5th out of 13 teams at the Alexandria Invitational January 19. At the Little Falls Invitational on January 26, the team took the 1st place Novice Award. At the Zimmerman Invitational on Feb. 2, the team placed 2nd in the large school category. Finally, on Feb. 9, the team took 3rd place for medium schools and 6th place overall out of 28 teams.
At this last speech meet at Saint Michael-Albertville, many students also placed in their categories. There were over 700 competitors. The students that placed included three out of the four dramatic duo teams from Sauk Rapids-Rice.
The team will be traveling to Princeton on Feb. 23 before hosting the Sauk Rapids-Rice Invitational Mar. 2. The public is welcome to come and support our speakers and the arts at the high school that day.
