CHS Speech to Host Chadron Invite Saturday, February 3rd

The 2017-18 Speech Team is proud to host the Chadron Invite this Saturday, February 3rd!
Competitive teams from area high schools will begin arriving at CHS by 7:45am, with events
starting at 8:30 a.m. and changing every hour and a half.

The CHS Speech Team has been working hard since the end of November to have a
successful and competitive season. And, last week, the team earned second place in Class B
events! Head Coach, Mrs. Lanphear, and Assistant Coach, Mrs. Welch, are new Speech
coaches this year. With more than 60% of the team new members (already completing at the
Varsity level at their second meet), this is a team to watch!

Stand out CHS Speech events include: Interpretation of Poetry (with award winning
competitors including senior JashwaAlan Cummings, junior Evelyn McEwen, and freshman
Alexis Conboy), and the two Oral Interpretation of Drama (OID) groups. The first OID is led
by seniors Aubree Noble and Brooklyn Stack and features Maddie Pelton, Jamison Margetts,
and Spencer Blundell; the second group is led by senior Hunter Hawk and features Abby Hyer,
Claire Margetts, Mande Wollensen, and Grace Sorenson. Persuasive and Informative
speakers include finalists Paige Carattini and Hannah Walker, both scoring well after only two
meets. New members Greg Downing (sophomore, Humor) and Kennady Stack (freshman,
Serious) have also medaled within the first two meets. In total, there are 27 active team
members, with too many early successes to list!
Events for this Saturday’s meet begin at 8:30 a.m. sharp. There will be schedules available at
the front door of CHS and Finals Rounds (the best of the best!) will begin at 1:30pm, with
awards to follow in the auditorium. Come to CHS this Saturday to support this dedicated and
talented team. Go Cards!
Thank you in advance for supporting the 2017-18 CHS Speech Team!
