Thief River Falls Speakers are in for the fight of their lives this week, as they prep for the Section 8 Class Double A Tournament Thursday in St. Cloud.
After dominating the Invitational Season in Northwest Minnesota, the Prowler Speech Team advanced 9 speakers and 3 alternates at the North SubSection tournament last week in Brainerd, with Thief River Falls taking a team second to last year’s Class Double AA State Champions, Moorhead.
Medalists advancing to competition tomorrow include; Joshua Row/Storytelling – Aly Karow/Drama – Jo Koppenhaver and Tyler Sele/Humor – Autumn Larson/Creative Expression – Duo Partners Brigham and Brielle Drevlow – Elise Kalnes and Franklin 7th Grader Ethan Osowski in Great Speeches ..
Alternates include; Senior Kate Byron, Grace Brickson and 7th Grader, Brynn Drevlow with the team dedicating their second place finish with a round of applause to Franklin Speaker, Ashleigh Kruse, injured after the final round of competition last Thursday in Brainerd.
It will be the toughest meet of the season Thursday, as Thief River Falls faces off once again against Moorhead and seasonal power-house St. Cloud Tech in St. Cloud, as they fight to advance individual speakers to the State Tournament later this month in Apple Valley ..
