State Speech Results - Congratulations!

posted Mar 21, 2019, 6:36 PM by Barb Simmons
Ellie Higgins placed 5th at the state speech meet in humorous prose and 6th place in serious prose. It is uncommon for a sophomore to compete in finals in two events at the state speech meet in the same year. The duet acting team of Lillian Frields and Christian Tietz placed 10th overall and did not make finals. (Top 6 only make finals at state) Erik Rodriguez placed 17th overall in extemporaneous speaking. 

Above Right: 4 state speech participants and coach Aaberg. From left to right: Christian Tietz, Erik Rodriguez, Coach Aaberg, Ellie Higgins, and Lillian Frields.

Ellie, Lillian, and Christian will all compete one last time this season at NIETOC in May at Millard North High School, which is a national speech tournament they have previously qualified for throughout the season.
