KAHS speech at Sauk By Jody Markgraf coach Kimball Speechers traveled to Sank Centre Saturday, March 2, to compete with 16 schools for top honors. At a speech tournament, students are ranked in each of three preliminary rounds, where competition is randomly drawn. Scores are then tallied, and speak- ers with the eight highest ranks meet ina fourth round. In this final round, the speakers are scored'by three judges. Team points are tal- lied based on both preliminary and final round scores. Kimball Speech had an Amaz- ing day at Saul Centre today. Although the team placed fourth in the large team division, we had 12 people in finals, including five in the top three, and scored second-most points in the final round. We also had two important firsts today: Junior Kim Fennema earned a place in the final round of Storytelling for the first time ever. Alissa Jones, a senior who has been part of the speech team since eighth grade, and who has placed second approximately a dozen times over her career, finally earned a Champion medal in Extemporaneous Reading.
