The Northwest College Forensics Team traveled light to the Steve Hunt Classic at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, but still managed to be heavy hitters when it came to awards.
With only seven students competing, NWC placed second among two-year schools, sixth overall in individual events, first among two-year programs in NPDA and fourth among two-year schools in overall combined sweepstakes.
In individual events, Chris Ghidella of Orange, California, placed fifth in drama (first place novice drama), while Green River’s Abigaile Grubb claimed first in novice communication analysis. In addition, Isaabella Munoz of Worland earned third in both program oral interpretation and poetry.
In debate, Ghidella was named 11th place novice speaker, Grubb took eighth place junior speaker, and Munoz scored sixth place junior speaker.
Additionally, Rock Springs’ Jared Lange was 11th place junior speaker, while Brendan Kachnowski, also of Rock Springs, took 12th place novice speaker.
NWC Forensics competes next at the Al Johnson Invitational Oct. 19-21 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. After that, they’re back on the road to Casper for the Pioneer Trails tournament Nov. 2-4.
