The Buffalo High School Speech and Debate team has been traveling for a few weeks and has had some great results. The team is a touch smaller this year than in the past, but that hasn’t stopped them from excelling in their performances.
In December the team attended a tournament in Spearfish, SD where several students advanced to elimination rounds.
In Original Oratory, freshman Andrew Moseman was able to make the break into semi-finals in the first tournament of his speech career.
In Extemporaneous Speaking, Nicholas Henry advanced to the final round and placed sixth overall.
In Congressional Debate Heidi Hauck made the break into Super Congress where she brought home the second place trophy.
After the holiday break, the team attended the Newcastle Doggie Invitational.
Only two members of the team were able to travel, due to it being semester exam week, but both of them advanced to the out rounds.
In Extemp, Kameesha Morris advanced to the semifinal round. Heidi Hauck once again had a wonderful weekend in Congressional Debate, qualifying for the Super Congress where she placed second overall.
The next weekend the team traveled to Gillette. Hunter Knight was able to break into the semifinal round of Extemp, and for the third weekend in a row, Heidi Hauck was in the final round of Congressional Debate and placed third overall.
Last weekend the team attended the Mustang Classic held at Natrona County High School in Casper, by far the largest tournament the team will attend all year.
They all did very well, but only Heidi Hauck was able to advance to out rounds. She advanced to Super Congress and ended the weekend placing in the top 16 of the 120 entries in that event.
