Buffalo High School's Forensics team traveled to Gillette last weekend to take part in the Camel Classic at Campbell County High School.
The team finished fourth in the 3A Division.
The Camel Classic Tournament is run on a different schedule than most of the tournaments the team attends. Because all of the events are run at the same time many members of the team had to choose only one event in which to compete.
In Student Congress, Kaleb Moseman was the only BHS competitor and he was able to advance to the final round, also called Super Congress. Moseman finished just out of the awards in ninth place overall.
In Lincoln Douglas Debate, once again two of the top four debaters were from Buffalo. Brianna Taylor and Cody Giles both won all four of their preliminary rounds and advanced to semifinals. Taylor did not advance and took home the 3rd place trophy. Giles advanced on to finals where he took first place at this tournament for the third year in a row.
Coach Walter Farwell said, “Because of the fact that most of the team was unable to double, we didn’t have quite the number of finalists that we usually do. Half of our team is new this year, so in reality the results have been very encouraging. And to have Cody win LD for the third year in a row is outstanding. The team did very well, and we are looking forward to having another good weekend in Natrona (this) week.”
