The Delta High School speech team traveled to Grand Junction High School March 1 and 2 to compete with nine Western Slope schools in the district tournament, vying for the opportunity to advance to the state tournament.
The 13-member Delta squad did very well, with six members qualifying for state and another four members finishing in very high alternate positions.
Debate qualifiers were the public forum team of Paige Bowling and Ridge Green, who posted a 3-1 record.
In the public speaking categories, Linh Nguyen qualified in original oratory.
Interpretive categories saw Delta do even better! Adam Malcolm and Christien Mackey not only qualified for state with their duo, they were also named district champions.
Alysha Richards brought another district championship to Delta in poetry and will be competing at state.
Three people were named first alternates, which gives them a good chance to be called up to compete. They are Javier Romero in drama, Ayasha Richards in poetry and Arla Nelson in humor. Haley Donathan was named second alternate in humor.
State qualifiers and any alternates who might get called up will compete at the state tournament to be held at Highlands Ranch High School in Denver March 22 and 23.blog comments powered by Disqus
