The Rock Creek forensics team took to the road again, traveling to Marysville High School to sneak in a make-up tournament before the Easter Break. The tournament was originally scheduled for February, but it was snowed out. It was worth the wait, as Rock Creek brought home the second place trophy.
Winning medals for the Mustangs were William Henry, who took 1st in humorous solo acting and 2nd in poetry; Dani Rakowitz, who took 1st in extemporaneous speaking and 2nd in oration; Rachel Askew, who took 3rd in oration and 5th in dramatic solo acting. Mikaela Morton won 4th in informative, and Kayla Huffman took 6th in prose. “We had, on the whole, a very young entry at Marysville. It was the first tournament for Mackenzie and Matt, and only the second for Ashton. I was happy for how they did. It was nice to come home with a trophy,” said Coach Miller.
The team will be at home this Easter weekend before traveling to Wamego on the 1st, Sacred Heart on the 4th and Ottawa on the 6th. “One last push before the end of the regular season,” said Coach Miller.
