The Delta High School speech team began the 2012-2013 season by attending the novice meet held at Palisade High School Saturday, Oct. 27. The tournament is set up so that only novices compete in the morning session, while both novices and returning team members participate in the Congress session held in the afternoon.
In the novice competition, Delta's Adam Malcolm took sixth place with a poetry piece, while Arla Nelson and Julie Cassel presented a duo selection that placed fifth.
Congress competition saw the whole Delta team speak for excellent scores. Ridge Green and Ayasha Richards received nominations as top speakers in their chamber, while Haley Donathan was named superior speaker in her House.
The team will next compete at the Grand Junction High School Tiger Talker Tournament Nov. 9 and 19. The team is also preparing for a home meet Nov. 16 and 17. At least 40 local judges are needed for this event. If you are interested in helping, please call Coach Jeanette Roberts at 874-4853 or 209-7249.blog comments powered by Disqus
