BGHS Speech Team Pulls of 1st Regional Championship in over a Decade
The BGHS Speech Team pulled off an amazing win Saturday at the BG Regional Speech Tournament. For the first time in over a decade, the Purples are Regional Speech Champions. The win is impressive because the smaller BG team was able to defeat the defending region champs who had over twice as many competitors as the 6 member BG team made up of all freshmen.
In addition to the team sweepstakes win, several BG students walked away as regional champions or runners-up in their individual events.
· Sean Compton—Regional Champion in Broadcasting
· Zack Martin—Regional Champion in Program Oral Interpretation
· Annika Avula—Regional Runner-up in Declamation, Broadcasting, and Impromptu
· Cole Vaughan—Regional Champion in H.I., Poetry, and Runner-up in Storytelling
