Perkins County speech team gains another win at Wallace Invitational
Perkins County’s speech team gained another first place victory with 100 points at the Wallace Invitational meet on Saturday, Jan. 18.
19 performances gained individual medals as well, and several students competed in more than one event.
“It was a really good day for the speakers,” said Coach Penny Hite. “As the season progresses, the meets get more competitive and we see the larger classes such as Class A and Class B schools.”
Perkins County will host their Invitational on Saturday, Feb. 1, which will be the next competition for the team. 14 schools have already committed to attend the PC Invitational, and Hite believes it should prove to be a great meet for the team to continue their work.
