The Three Forks High School Speech and Drama team competed at the state tournament this weekend in Big Fork, placing third in Speech.

30 Three Forks participants qualified for semi-finals and 22 placed individually at the tournament. Hannah Rummelhart and Alexis Welch won individual state championships on Saturday. Also placing in the top four in the state were Finn Hansen, Kevin Richards, Bailey Partain, Ally Kamps, Kalli Miller, and Michael Boyd.

As was anticipated the competition at the state tournament was extremely high, and it became a close battle for the Class B Speech team championship with Great Fall Central scoring 151, Loyola Sacred Heart scoring 139, and Three Forks scoring 116. A fight for the state title was anticipated, and our kids fought and fought with that high level of competition.

With the state titles in their individual events, Rummelhart and Welch met a goal that they've both had for their entire high school careers. For that goal to be achieved is representative of the immense amount of time they have worked, the toughness that they possess, and the talent that they both hold. Over the past nine years, Three Forks Speech and Drama has had only 11 individual state champions, and for Lexi and Hannah to be a part of that list is something that they should be proud of.

Bailey Partain, Ally Kamps, Saryna Smith, Hannah Wilson, Lilly Lindquist, Kalli Miller, and Michael Boyd have been consistent competitors throughout the entire season, and that proved to be true again this weekend, with them succeeding in round-after-round, and all seven placing at the tournament. The broad range of talent and intensity that those seven students possess showed up this weekend and helped them to succeed.

This weekend was particularly special because it serves as the last weekend of competition for our seniors. Dean Buchholz, Aden Lehr, Hannah Wilson, Bailey Partain, Dennis Kurttie, Oscar Gonzalez, Kalli Miller, Lilly Lindquist, and Hannah Rumelhart have all dedicated themselves to this program and to watch them compete one last time was truly valuable. The influence that they've had on this team and the younger students will be felt long after they are gone.
