Congratulations to the St. John Vianney forensics team for their huge win in the state forensics competition on Saturday March 27th. The team competed against approximately 1,200 students from 80 different schools from across the state and won a Gold trophy in the small schools category.
Eight students competed in various categories, such as Moments in History, Prose, Poetry, Humorous Solo and Infomercial. After the initial two rounds, four students advanced to the Power Round, where only the top one third of the students in each category compete. Daniel Siy and Grace Tallmadge both had the honor of wining 1st place in their categories. In addition, John McCloskey and Allison Uy also advanced to the Power Round after the first two rounds of competition. Others who participated in the state forensics meet were Anna Davel, Emma Nitschke, Suzy DeGuire and Samantha Windsor. The outstanding performance of the entire team earned SJV the 5th place honor in the small school category.
