Extemporaneous Speaking, Seniors Julia Caine and Brooke Vanaman made
the semi-finals (the top 12 competitors) in Duo Interpretation, Caine
also made the semi-finals in Humorous Interpretation and Vanaman made
the semi-finals in Oral Interpretation, senior Antonia Lassar made the
semi-finals in Humorous Interpretation, and senior Siddhi Krishna made
the semi-finals in Student Congress.
According to Speech Team head coach and South math teacher, Lisa
Honeyman, Yale draws some of the toughest competition of any
tournament all year.
“My semi round was really intense,” Krishna said. “The level of
competition was high’€a lot of the people in my chamber were in the
final round at Nationals last spring.”
The speech team’s next local tournament will be at Hull High School in
Hull, Massachusetts on October 27, and the next national tournament
they will travel to will be the Villiger Tournament at Saint Joseph’s
University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 17 to 18.
“I’m optimistic that the team will have a great season,” Honeyman said.
