Young speech team kicks off season       Send a link to a friend

[NOV. 7, 2005]  NORMAL --  The 2005-2006 speech season began this weekend for the Lincoln Community High School speech team, and the team brought home a fourth-place finish overall from a tournament at Illinois State University. The novice team finished third overall. Novice champions included Kaylyn Englehardt in prose and declamation and Kelly Lohrenz in dramatic interpretation.

Other finalists for the novice team were Chelsea Filbeck, second in extemporaneous, and Lincoln Moore, third in original comedy. Varsity finalists were Annie Sheley, third in declamation and fifth in humorous duet with Tony Curcuru; Ruth Ohmart, fifth in verse and seventh in prose; Amy Schumacher, sixth in declamation; Janel Filbeck, sixth in oratory; and Cameron Kurtz, sixth in extemporaneous.

"This year's team will see success; however, we lost 11 seniors last year and we have some work to do," said Ed Jodlowski, a coach of the LCHS team. "This tournament wasn't the largest, but it did have good competition from many suburban Chicago schools, so our inexperience and lack of preparation impacted these results -- yet we were ecstatic for our novice winners. We look forward to great results next week, when we travel to Normal West."
