PHS Forensics at Kingman

PHS FORENSICS NECK-AND-NECK WITH BUHLER COMPETITION
 
At the Kingman Invitational Forensics Tournament on Sat. Jan. 28th, Pratt High School kept flip-flopping in scores against Buhler High School, and by the end of the meet, Pratt ended up with 271 points in a strong second place against Buhler with 274. Hutchinson High School came in #3 with 204 points, while 11 other teams fell below those points.
 
The Greenbacks had an excellent day with 5 events qualifying to attend state championships, with 1 qualifying for festival, and with 11 total in finals. Abby Domann and Brynn Hampton (juniors) had their most successful day in their high school forensics career by earning "1"s all day in Duet Acting. In addition, Domann earned 2nd in IDA (Improvised Duet Act) with Dillon Cochran (senior.) 
 
Cochran also had a successful day by ending up the competition in Serious Solo with a first place, while senior Ciara Hodgkinson earned #1 in Informative Speaking and Kevin Johnson did so in Oration. All have qualified for state championships.
 
Earning a place for state festival completion was also Abby Domann, receiving #4 in Impromptu Speaking.
 
In addition to the above finalists, senior Joseph Stewart received #5 in Humorous Solo, and junior Elise Coykendall earned #5 in Oration. For #6 in finals, these PHS students brought home medals: Brazilian exchange student and sophomore Diego Leo in Informative Speaking, junior Lindsey Bergner in Oration, and Johnson in Extemporaneous Speaking. 
 
The team wouldn't have earned so many points if sophomores Leo and Morgan Rogers would have kept from leaping into IDA competition, plus Stewart pitching in to perform Humorous Solo. These three substituted for a student who became ill, and it made the difference in points earned throughout the day.
 
The team will continue competing this winter and spring with 1-2 tournaments weekly.
