Forensics Team Closes Season at State

It’s been a whirlwind forensics season! They Holy Angels Forensics Team met for the first time just before Thanksgiving, selected and wrote pieces and began practicing. Their first competition was at St. Kilian at the end of January, followed by competitions at Webster Transitional School in Cedarburg, Badger, St. John the Baptist in Plymouth, St. Frances Cabrini, and Silverbrook.

To qualify for the Middle Level Forensics Association (MLFA) State Tournament (this year held at Neenah High School on March 15), students’ three best meet scores had to average 37 points or higher (the highest possible score is 42). Qualifying for the State Meet this year were sixth grader Ryan Mas, and seventh graders Amanda Scherbarth, Brianna Chipman, Brittany Hopp, and Inge Frey. They competed with 1500 middle school students from over 100 school across the state.

Forensics is open to students in grades six through eight and helps them develop public speaking skills and self-confidence that other extra-curriculars cannot address. They learn important life and social skills as they interact with the best of the best from around our area and around the state. The skills learned in forensics will be used throughout high school and college and beyond.
