The Pawnee City Speech Team Went “Out West”

By Sabre Menninga, Sophomore

    On Saturday, February 21st, the Pawnee City Speech Team competed at the Sutton Invite. This is a bigger meet than the team is used to. However, the team did well. Carly Hunzeker, Steven Bruns, Abby Mathewson, Macey Gyhra, and Kellen Habegger placed 2nd in OID about Alice In Wonderland. Also, Kellen Habegger and Steven Bruns placed 6th in their Duet portraying characters from Mice and Men. Ann Cline and Julia Schultheiss placed 7th in their Duet and 2nd in their Improv Duo, which is where the girls pick a random prompt and have a short amount of time to prepare and perform it. Julia Schultheiss also placed 3rd in humorous. Joslyn Sharpe earned 6th in Poetry. Carly Hunzeker placed 10th in Informative.
Mrs. Bloss states, “We saw some not-so-ready speeches, and some state-contender ones as well.  There were D2 to B schools in attendance, so there was a wide range of speakers.”
