After a four-week lull and a third-place finish at the first junior high speech meet in March, West Holt certainly picked up the pace by winning the championship at the O’Neill Invitational. West Holt speakers won certificates in each of the following eight categories:

    Public Speaking-Hadleigh Stracke 6th, Addison Karo 5th and Olivia Micheel 2nd

    Serious Prose-Alexis Stracke 2nd; Poetry-Alexis Stracke 1st

    Declamation-Emily Ogden 3rd

    Humorous Prose-Lainey Smith 3rd and Madeline Rentschler 2nd

    Duet Acting-Emilee Walnofer, Brittany Beckwith 6th, Miya Carey, Addison Karo 5th, Madeline Rentschler, Susan Watson 4th, Asher McCart, Isaac Pistulka 3rd,

        Olivia Micheel, Violet Schwager 2nd, and Mary Belle Hamilton, Abigail Thiele 1st

    OID-Sidney Burkinshaw, Mary Belle Hamilton, Carter Gotschall, Abigail Thiele 3rd and Brittany Beckwith, Lana Hooey, Mackenzie Kaup, Kelcie Osborne, EmiLee Walnofer 1st. 

It was quite an exciting afternoon for us! One of the best parts of the awards ceremony was seeing six West Holt duets lined up to receive certificates.

Our next and final meet will take place Friday, April 12 in Norfolk. Lots of memorizing and practicing will be key to being successful at this meet.
