The Marshfield Speech and Debate team competed at Springfield Catholic this past weekend in the NSDA district tournament. The top three finishers move on to compete in the National Championship, which takes place in Pheonix, Az in June.
Four students from Marshfield won the following awards:
Ian Thompson and Mya Doty finished in the top three in Duo and qualified for the National tournament. Bryna Norman finished at the top of the Program of Oral Interpretation, qualifying her for the National tournament.
Shiann “Lou” Westfall finished 4th in Original Oratory and will be the first alternate for Nationals.
“We are incredibly proud of our team and these individuals for reaching this difficult goal,” said Speech and Debate teacher Greg Holtschneider. “The top 1% of competitors qualify for the National tournament, so this is quite an achievement.”
