Magic Day for Greenback Forensics

February 14, 2017

On Saturday, Feb. 11th, not only did the Pratt High School wrestlers win their league competition, but also forensics had a stellar day competing in Individual Events at Wichita East - edging out many of the bigger 4A, 5A, and 6A schools, While they didn't win, they did come in a strong #4 under Kapaun Mt. Carmel, Wichita Trinity, and Derby, but OVER Buhler, Maize South, Maize, El Dorado, Andover, and other Wichita-area schools. A total of 17 high schools competed.
Qualifying to compete at State Championships in May, Pratt High juniors brought their magic to performing. Abby Domann and Brynn Hampton continued their winning streak in Duo Acting, keeping their record of all "1"s earned in competition so far, and they once again brought home the gold. With great joy, Amber Jellison Harris and Kedric Spurgin came in a close second in Duo, for the first time earning the right to perform at state "champs." 
Also Jellison Harris earned silver in Prose, while Domann earned bronze in Impromptu Speaking against 54 competitors, and both juniors qualified for State Championships with their placings.
Qualifying to compete at State Festival were the following: freshman Kahrie Stegman in Novice Prose with second place (her first state placing in her high school forensics competition); junior Elise Coykendall in Oration with third; and junior Kevin Johnson in Oration with fourth.
Along with the state qualifiers, three other events made it to finals. For the first time in his high school career, novice freshman Coleton Cummins earned third in  Novice Prose. Stegman earned sixth in Novice Extemporaneous Speaking, while sophomore Ryleigh Cook received sixth in KSHSAA Informative Speaking. 
The whole day was a successful one for Greenback forensics, and three women made the day even stronger by showing character and heart. When another student didn't show for the bus Saturday, Coykendall and Hampton both pitched in to take over those events. In addition, Sophomore Alesha Bergner cheered on the whole team while adding points in Impromptu and Extemporaneous Speaking. Junior Alysha Wilson also added points to the team.
Next, the team will head west to Meade where they will compete against western Kansas schools on Thursday, Feb. 16th.
