Speech and Debate team did awesome at Natioinals. Arielle Latiolais made it into the top 24 in the nation in both Poetry and Program Oral Interpretation. Lance Bordelon also made it into the top 24 in Dramatic Interpretation. Everyone did well and a number of our events were points away from breaking into the top 24. Overall, the team is the current 26th team in the nation. It's impressive for a small, poor team. We were clearly the smallest, poorest team in the top 35.
Congratulations to those who attended and were honored at the convention of the International Listening Association!
