Leo and Lily place 6th in Class A State Speech

A total of five students from the River Valley speech team participated in the MSHSL Class A State Speech tournament held at Eastview High School in Apple Valley on Saturday, April 29.  This year’s participants included senior, Sarah Kottke in drama, junior, Kiera Lafferty in prose, sophomore, Lily Kallevig in extemp reading and the duo team composed of freshman, Lily Pingeon and eighth grader, Leo Hovland.  

On Friday morning, prior to their departure for the state tournament, the state participants and their coaches were treated to a state “send-off” from the student body. Elementary students and teachers lined the hallways, cheering and giving well-wishes to the state speakers as they walked by.  See complete story in this week's issue of the Springfield Advance-Press.
