POWELL, Wyoming — The Northwest College Forensics Team took silver again in its second outing of the season at the Steve Hunt Classic held Oct. 9-11 at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon.

The large tournament attracted 48 two-and four-year schools. In the community college division, NWC was bested only by Mt Hood Community College of Oregon and came in ahead of third-place finisher Western Wyoming Community College of Rock Springs. NWC scored enough points to finish 11th overall among all colleges participating.

In individual event competition, NWC’s Jarelly Castro of Greybull finished fifth in novice persuasive. Emily Myers (Worland) and Nora Minch (Billings, Montana) placed third with their duet, and Powell’s Josey Nickles finished fifth in novice persuasive.

Myers and Nickles teamed up to take third in novice parliamentary debate, while Bianca Larsen (Powell) and Taylor Moles (Paris, Texas) took third in junior parliamentary debate.

Nickles claimed the first place novice debate speaker award, Myers took third, and Moles was named 10th place junior debate speaker.

The NWC team hits the road again near the end of the month to compete at the Oct. 23-25 Al Johnson Invitational in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
