Saturday, February 8th, found the Silver Lake speech team at Aurora High School. We had 9 members participate in speech events. Zane Journey presented a Humorous Prose, Jenna Strampher delivered a Poem, Brock Karr and Samantha Bonifas participated in extemporaneous speaking and AJ Niemeyer and Ashley Jensby performed a duet. Also performing were our Freshmen OID group, consisting of Eric Blythe, Samantha Bonifas, Kassi Jones, Braden Karr, and Taiton Trausch. Receiving 10th place in their categories were Samantha Bonifas in Novice Extemporaneous Speaking and the Freshmen OID Group in Novice Oral Interpretive Drama. Coaches Kim Bonifas and Kaitlyn Hemberger were happy with their team members performances as most had never participated in Speech before. The speech season will continue through March. We invite the public to a Speech Night on March 10th at the High School to see how hard everyone has worked.
