On Tuesday January 31st, the HHS forensics team took part in the VHSL district competition in Waynesboro, Virginia. The meet was held at Waynesboro High School. To continue on to regional competition, students had to place in the top 3 of their category.

Freshman Mia Karr placed first in impromptu speaking. In that category, students must compose speeches based on random topics they are given such as shopping or Pippa Middleton.

“I was really excited. Before, I was just hoping I would place in the top three. It was unexpected,” Karr said.

In the end, Seniors Lindsey Carpenter and Ama Ansah, Freshman Mia Karr, and Sophomore Tyler Edwards all placed first in their categories.  Senior Allison McKenzie and Sophomore Daelyn McCleave placed second in their categories. Sophomores Deb Halpern and Ellen Upton placed third in Humorous Duo Interpretation while Freshman Anna Dick placed third in Serious Dramatic interpretation. All these students will be going to regional competition on February 25th.

“I’m really excited. I don’t know what to expect because I’m not sure how the competition will increase,” Karr said.

McKenzie is also stoked for the next competition. “I’m super pumped,” McKenzie said. “I’m really proud of my team.”
