On Saturday January 23, the SHS Speech Team competed in their first meet of the season. Five members participated. It was a first for the speech team as it was a virtual meet. Christina Lewellyn, Jeimy Gomez, Jenni Hadcock, Melissa Slagle, and Deja Davenport competed in Novice Poetry. Each speaker performed her speech two times via jitsi (a platform similar to Zoom) with one student advancing to finals. Deja qualified for finals and earned an 11th place medal as well as a superior ribbon.
