River Valley Speakers are tops in MSHSL 3A tourney
A total of five students from the River Valley speech team participated at the Minnesota State High School League Class A Speech Tournament held at Apple Valley High School on Saturday, April 21. Each participant involved put in a tremendous amount of work throughout the season to earn the opportunity to perform at the state tournament this year. Each student competed in three rigorous preliminary rounds of competition. Their hard work certainly paid off, as all five students advanced into the final rounds, which featured the state’s top eight speakers in each category. During final rounds, students performed to full audiences made up of coaches, friends, family members, and other spectators from throughout the state. River Valley was the top placing team in section 3A, having five out of the 10 finalists from the section.
