Forensics Team Takes 1st Place in Districts

Congratulations to the MLWGS Forensics Team for a first place finish in the 2009-10 Colonial District Championship on Friday, February 12 at Tucker High School.

First place winners include Charles Fricke (2012) in Extemporaneous Speaking, Luke Haushalter (2011) in Serious Dramatic Interpretation, Ishani Premaratne (2011) in Poetry Interpretation, and Anna Spiers (2011) in Storytelling. Students who finished second include Marc Breidenbaugh (2011) in Extemporaneous Speaking and Timmy Teller (2011) in Prose Interpretation, while Emily Zhang (2011) placed third in Original Oratory.

“I am thrilled with how well the team performed,” said Celie Boswell, the team’s coach. “The students had such limited preparation time as a result of the snow days and three-week exam marathon. I continue to be impressed by our phenomenal students.”

Seven students from the team will advance to the Regional Competition, which will be held at Monacan High School on Tuesday, March 2.
