On Tuesday, March 10, the junior high speakers of River Valley Speech attended one last junior high tournament at St. Peter.  They ended their season with a bang by taking first place as a team! Taking first place in their categories were Sarah Kottke in drama, Lucas Milbrath in humorous, KayLynn Sanderville in extemporaneous speaking, and the duo team of Mogen Winkelmann and Jack Scheitel.  Second place went to Cosette Klotz in great speeches and third place went to Joseph Jensen in humorous and Kiera Lafferty in prose. Also in prose, Brenna Pabst placed fourth, while Jace Rosenau placed fifth. Bryn Gordon, humorous and the duo team of Kade Nachreiner and Brady Anderson also placed fifth in their categories.  The speech team had plans of traveling to other tournaments, but all plans are currently placed on hold. Speech is waiting for official rulings from the MSHSL to determine if the season will be postponed or cancelled.
