Speakers and debaters invaded Newton South on Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9 as the school hosted a regional qualifier for the National Forensic League’s national tournament.
Hundreds of students dressed in suits performed pieces and debated topics in rooms all over the school. They arrived almost as soon as school ended on Friday and left Friday night. Those who made it to the next rounds retuned on Saturday.
Newton South’s Speech Team qualified four students for Nationals. Juniors Rebecca Goldstein and Alex Tolkin qualified in Extemporaneous speaking. Seniors Justine and Antonia Lassar respectively qualified in Dramatic and Humorous Interpretation.
The four, along with Speech Team coach Lisa Honeyman, will travel to Las Vegas in June to compete against other high school students from around the country.
