Holy moly, this weekend is jam packed with stuff going on! But hey, that’s always a good thing. It keeps me out of trouble and give me things to blog about right? Staying positive, folks 🙂
Yesterday was the MSHSL 8AA Speech Sections Tournament. As you may recall, I am a speech coach for Moorhead High School and we brought over 50 of our top speakers to the Sections Tournament against other well-prepared teams, such as St. Cloud Tech, Bemidji, Thief River Falls, Little Falls, and others. It was a long day, with the actual tournament starting at 4pm and not finishing until 12AM, but our speakers were troopers the whole day. In the end, we had EVERYONE on our team break to the semi-final rounds and from there, we have 23 speakers advancing to the Class AA State Tournament next weekend at Blaine High School in the Cities. Even better, Moorhead earned 147 team points and won the title of Section Champions for the 19th year in a row. How amazing is that?!
I am so unbelievably proud of these speakers. Yet, timing during the prelims and final rounds of Storytelling, (the category I mainly competed in) was a little bittersweet. Sweet because I got to watch Moorhead speakers and even my own sister, Brielle, compete, but it just reminded me now that another season has come and gone too fast! I can’t wait for next winter to start up yet another speech season…although with the snow we have been receiving it sure does look like winter outside…
Good luck SpudSpeech! Until next time!
