Over 530 competitors from C, B, A, and AA schools gathered at Billings West High School on November 7, 2015 for the Speech and Drama Eastern Kickoff. The Sweet Grass County High School Speech & Drama team showed up prepared to play, with eleven upperclassmen competing and the three Freshman team members spectating.

The 2015-2016 SGHS team:

Wyatt MacKubbin (11) - Humorous Solo

Jason Smith (9) - Humorous Solo

Megan Garrard (12) - Pantomime

At a typical Speech & Drama meet, there are three preliminary rounds. Each round has several sections, with 6-8 competitors per section. In each section, every competitor is ranked from first to last. After the three prelim rounds, scores are tallied and the eight competitors with the lowest scores in each event advance to a finals round. Finals is worth as much as the three prelim rounds, as there are three judges (and hence, three scores) in Finals.

Eight of the eleven competing SGHS team members advanced to Finals. At the award ceremony that evening, Avery Conner & Ethan Peterson, the reigning State Champions in Class B Classical Duo, stepped forward to receive their 1st place medals. Kacin Perret and Honey Cranston placed 8th in Classical Duo. Kirsten Gano brought home a 5th place medal in Serious Solo, while Lauryn Yuzeitis ended the day in 7th place in Humorous Solo. Megan Garrard placed 7th in Pantomime, and Erin Dringman received 1st in Impromptu Speaking.

This upcoming weekend, the SGHS Speech & Drama team travels to a two-day, all-class tournament in Corvallis. Visit on Saturday evening for results!
