In their last competition of the season, the Three Forks High School Speech and Drama team once again showed they are one of the premier programs in the Treasure State. The Wolves Speech team finished in second place, and the Drama team had several competitors place at last week's Class B State Tournament at Huntley Project High School.
"Although we had our eyes set on first, I am pleased with how the students performed and am proud of their efforts. I know the students learned a lot, and we are all looking forward to next season," Head Coach Johnathan Sutton said.
Maddie Griffiths was second in Memorized Public Address, and Josh Williams was second in Original Oratory, losing a tiebreaker for first place.
Three Forks shined in Extemporaneous Speaking with senior Caden Freeborn finishing second, Bella Fink placing fourth, and Nick Howard finishing in sixth place.
In Humorous Oral Interpretation, senior Asher Lehr was sixth, Lydia Kluin was seventh, and Noah Hegar finished in ninth.
Senior Yen Shae Fan was fourth in Lincoln Douglas Debate, and senior Grace Donnelly was eighth in Impromptu speaking. Finn Hanson and Yen Hang Fan were fourth in the Public Forum Debate, and Arlo Smith and Noah Murphy finished in sixth place.
Sutton said the students in Drama performed well, showcasing great talent and hard work. Taeyana Gesker and Zoe Pyfer were third in Classical Duo, and Falisha Dale was sixth in Pantomime.
"I am proud of the students' efforts, and I'm looking forward to next season already," Sutton said.
