Somerset High School has nine students competing in forensics. All nine of them performed so well at the District competition on March 29 that they all qualified for the 2008 Wisconsin State Speech Festival. The festival is sponsored by the Wisconsin High School Forensics Association.
The success at the District meet, which was held in Hudson, follows a string of success for the Somerset team. They competed in two festivals and then subdistricts before the District meet, and they earned impressive scores in each level of competition.
Two Somerset teams made it to state in the Play Acting category.
The team of Soda Henne, Katie Carr and Hanna Newman advanced to state with their performance of “The Wedding Story.” This is based on a modern look at the fairy tale wedding.
The team of Greta Leemkuil and Sara Dettmann qualified for state with their performance of “Open To Interpretation.” This act gives several different variations of the ‘Hansel and Gretel’ story.
Qualifying for state in the Group Interpretation area was the team of Rachel Van Dam and Johanna Smith. They performed the comedic piece “Traffic Woes.”
Two Somerset students qualified for state as individuals in the Solo Acting category. Cambrya Belter advanced for her performance “Turmoil in a Blue and Beige Bedroom.”
