The Butte Falls Speech and Debate Team continued their successful season on Saturday Jan. 30 at the North Valley Pentathlon. The Pentathlon allows a maximum of three students per school to compete in five different speech events. Not only do students receive awards in each category, but also the outstanding Pentathlon competitors are recognized.
This year, Junior Quinby Barrows placed fourth in the Pentathlon. In order to receive this distinction, she advanced to finals in four of her five events. Quinby was a finalist in Poetry Reading, she received third place in Humorous Interpretation and placed second in both Prose Reading and Expository Speaking. Coaches Warren and Pizzzos, and the team, extend their congratulations to Quinby. The team is looking forward to their future meets including: The University of Oregon, National Qualifiers and State.
