Recently the Speech and Debate team took  fourth overall in the Hollister tournament. This tournament was good preparation for Districts which is coming up soon. Kyah Barr and Olivia Mottel took first in their Duet piece called, “The Insanity of Mary Girard.”  They did a great job in the talent show performing this piece, and have been perfecting it ever since. Kyah Barr is in her freshman year and really excelling. When she hits the stage she has such a confidence that makes her performance very compelling. They have a great chemistry in the acts they do. Another member that placed in this tournament was Zane Henry. He placed 3rd in Humorous Interpretations. This is Zane’s first year being a part of speech and debate but he claims that “he has been telling jokes his whole life.” I asked Zane what made him want to do speech and debate and he said, “I wanted the English credit. But I also wanted some trophies that weren’t based on participation.”
