Duster Speech Brings Home State Medals
Holdrege HS Speech Team members Jarod Cernousek, Amanda Envick and Maddie Moore qualified for the State Meet in Kearney yesterday through their District B-5 performances a little more than a week ago. Senior Jarod qualified in the Serious Prose and Humorous Prose categories, while Junior Amanda Envick qualified in Serious Prose and Sophomore Maddie Moore qualified with her Informative Speaking entry.
At the State Meet, Moore and Envick performed very well against tough competition, and Cernousek earned high enough scores in the preliminary rounds to make finals. Jarod ended up with a 3rd place medal in both of his events! The Dusters team finished in 10th place at State, and served as another indicator that we have a strong conference presence in Speech. Central Conference schools made up 5 of the top 10 team placings on Thursday! Having a Senior bring home 2 medals was a great conclusion to a terrific year of competition for the Duster Speech team. Congratulations to all Duster Speech Team members and thanks for all your hard work!
