Basketball, wrestling, and swimming are many events students are involved in during the winter season, speech team is a underlooked extra curricular event. After record numbers last year speech team is rising in popularity.
With over 100 speech team participants in the previous season, this years team has the bar set high in expectations. Wells says, “I’m excited for this year’s team and very excited to see what this year has to bring to the table!”
Anderson also said she’s putting a new twist on the category readers theater. Instead of doing a scene from a play, this time it is more like a choral reading. Along with a successful choral reading, last year Boone’s improv team went to the competition and had a great showing, scoring a one; the highest score you can get in such category.
Freshman are looking for good numbers as well. Wells is in charge of the freshman choral reading and is expecting many to come out and at least try it out. Speech team organizational meeting is on Monday, November 16th at 3:30pm in the auditorium.
