Speech

Coaches: Rachel Schieffelbein and Stephanie Copeman

Speech practice begins in January. There are thirteen different categories, ranging from informative pieces to poetry. There are several categories where the students write their own piece, and several where they do not. They generally work on the same piece all season and memorization is not required. Practices are held after school Tuesday through Friday, but attendance is flexible. Competitions are every Saturday, February through mid April, but students are not required to participate in every meet.
