Despite being apart, our US Speech & Debate has continued to meet weekly over Zoom to hone their skills and prepare for competition. This weekend, 6 members of the team will participate in the California Middle School Forensics State Championships. For the first time in it's 10 year history, the event will be held entirely online. The OOS team will compete in a variety of events including poetry, story telling, duo, humorous interpretation, and Program Oral Interpretation (POI). They had a great showing at last year's CHSSA Middle School State Championships (with one member snagging 5th place overall in POI!) and have become Zoom experts so we have no doubt they will make us all proud! Big thanks to Coach Beth Martin (Syd, GR8; Quinn, OOS '18, ND '22) for all the support and mentorship!
