MHS Forensic Team Places 2nd At Cabot Classis Tournament

January 25th, 2012 by

The MHS Forensic Team earned a 2nd place sweepstakes award at the Cabot Classic this past weekend. All members contributed to this team award, and students in 5 events advanced to semi-finals.

Semi-finalists earning superior ratings were Becca Stephenson (poetry), Dani West (humorous interpretation), Shelby White (original oratory), Hannah James (original oratory), and the duo team of Maggie Barnett and Celeste Richard (duet acting). These semi-finalists are now qualified to compete in the Tournament of Champions in April.

Students earning either 3rd place, superior or excellent ratings in the preliminary rounds were Shelby White (poetry), Mary Kate Jones (prose), Jessica Craven (solo acting), Savannah Reynolds (solo acting) Erin Ashcraft and Mary Kate Jones (duet acting), John Bonfanti and Hannah James (duet acting), L. J. Leslie and Jessica Craven (duet acting), Krystle Conyers (dramatic interpretation), Erin Ashcraft (storytelling), Melodie Sandlin (storytelling), Jacob Chisom and Daniel Wigley (debate) and the members of the Readers Theatre performance of Charlotte’s Web. Michelle Montgomery continued to compete in the tournament after losing her partner and still earned 4th place in two events (humorous interp and Improvised Duet Acting) during the preliminary rounds.

As a result of the tournament, MHS has 4 more students who have earned membership into the National Forensic League: Erin Ashcraft, Jacob Chisom, Mary Kate Jones, and Dani West. Hannah James increased her status in NFL to a Degree of Excellence.
