BHS Speech Team Performs Well At Rapid City

Last weekend the Buffalo High School Speech team traveled to the Rapid City Stevens tournament. This event featured schools from throughout South Dakota and parts of Wyoming.

It was a competitive tournament featuring talent from a number of established programs including the extremely competitive Aberdeen High School, who many believe may be this year's South Dakota State Champion.

Buffalo had a fine showing placing 3 out of 5 of its competing crew in the top six in each of their competitive areas.

Heidi Hauck placed sixth overall in a very competitive congressional debate event. This is the 4th tournament in a row in which she has placed in the top six.
Kameesha Morris placed 3rd overall in her division of Lincoln/Douglas debate, just missing final round competition on a tie-breaker.
Nick Henry also placed third overall, beating a challenging Aberdeen competitor in the 4th round. Nick missed advancing to the final round by a tie breaker.

“The BHS Speech Team has had a history of placing well at tournaments. I can only recall three tournaments in the last 21 years that we have failed to either advance a competitor to elimination rounds or place in the top six at the event. This includes regional and national competition. As a school and community we are proud of these kids - and they have earned it,” said Coach Walter Farwell.

Buffalo High School was recognized as an outstanding speech and debate program in the small school division at the tournament.
