State speech and group interp results     Send a link to a friend

[APRIL 5, 2004]  The Lincoln Community High School speech team advanced two individuals to the National Forensic League National Speech Tournament in Salt Lake City in June. In weekend competition at the state level, Kathryn Muck finished second in dramatic interpretation and Lindsey Boerma finished third in humorous interpretation.

Coach Carrie Schreiber said: "These two individuals are the first students in many years to advance from Lincoln Community High School, and it is quite a prestigious accomplishment. They will be competing with students from around the United States. This competition will make them better speakers."

In addition, Lincoln group interpretation cast members Kassandra Pepperell, Doug Rohrer and Tom Swanson were named to the all-state group interpretation casts. These students were nominated by at least four of five judges at the IHSA state tournament.

The group interpretation entry itself did not advance to the final round but placed fourth in its section.

Co-director Ed Jodlowski said: "We were disappointed not to advance to the final, because we had such a solid performance. Two judges said we should advance; however, we managed to only place fourth. On the positive side, though, it was great for Kasey, Doug and Tom. They deserved to be on the all-state cast for their excellent performances."
