"This was our first time to go to Reed Custer," said Ed Jodlowski, one of the LCHS speech coaches. "Different competition and a larger field really is the only way to help us improve. If we only see the same teams week in and week out, then how do we know how competitive we are? Right now, we are attempting to do anything we can to continue to make this [group of] kids grow in their performances, and it is really helping."

Next week the team is closer to home at the Heyworth invitational.
