Our competitors entered in a variety of events this weekend, and many were competing in events that were new to them. The following students were recognized for their performance over the course of the tournament:
- Abigail Allyn, '17--broke to her first finals, took 6th place in Impromptu
- Jade Felthoven, '18--Superior in Original Oratory
- Jailene Ledesma, '16--Superior in Poetry
- Charlotte Lartson, '17 & Ben Berry, '17--Superior in Improvisational Pairs
- Simon Menso, '15 & Colin McGuire, '15--Superior in Improvisational Pairs
- Casey Lambert, '16--Excellence in Congress, best speaker nomination
I couldn't be happier with the results of our first tournament. Not only did they have fun and get to know new people, our competitors earned a combined total of nearly 150 NFL points. We now welcome five new members to the NFL Honor Society, as they have earned their degree of merit: Jade Felthoven, Ben Berry, Charlotte Lartson, Bailee Jones, and Casey Lambert.
To all of our competitors--well done! I'm looking forward to what the rest of our season holds for us!
