HHS forensics place second at Marion

Staff writer

Hillsboro High School forensics missed first place Thursday at Marion by a mere three points.

The Trojans had a good showing from top to bottom in finishing behind Moundridge. All but two of the team’s entries advanced to the final round.

“I’m really proud of their performance,” Bebermeyer said. “They did a great job competing.”

Bebermeyer said the team showed weakness in the speaking events, but were strong in the acting and interpretive events.

Jessica Elliott won first place in solo serious acting for her performance of James Milner’s “A Little Girl’s Terror.”

Trojans earning second place were Heidi Schroeder, solo humorous acting; Joe Fisher, solo serious acting; Matt Klenda and Chance Reese, improvised duet acting; Fisher and Nolan Dirks, duet acting; Jet Skiles, prose; and Rochelle Cecil, informative.

Third place earners were Cecil and Amanda Roble, duet acting; Hayley Pankratz, poetry; and Pankratz, prose. Team members taking fourth place were Dirks and Ishmael Morris, improvised duet acting; Morris and Schroeder, duet acting; and Klenda, oration.

Roble earned fifth place in solo serious acting, and Carly Weisbeck earned fifth in prose. Skiles placed sixth in poetry.

HHS hosted a meet Monday evening.
