03/07/12 Students from Plymouth High School add another Sectional Championship to their string of more than 30 consecutive!

The Plymouth Speech Team out-distanced 2nd place Elkhart Central by a score of 234 to 85 in the 12-team field this past weekend.  The dominant performance was executed as PHS became the only team in the state to advance all 36 of its entries from the Sectional to the State Finals AND won 10 of the 14 events at the Sectional.

Individual champions included: Rebecca Brumbaugh and Shelby Pratt in Memorized Duo, Jessica Cleveland in Drama, Patrick Felke in International Extemp, Cassie Gaines and Olivia Hilliard in Scripted Duo, Pauline Dagaas in Declamation, Michaila Nate in both USA Extemp and Impromptu, April Bowen and Kate Peters in Original Performance, Gracie Gilbertson in Poetry, and Shelby Pratt in Humor.

This coming weekend, the team turns its attention toward national qualification as it prepares for a very competitive district tournament here at PHS on Saturday.
