New Richmond Senior High School Forensics left its mark in Madison this past weekend with students capturing 10 gold medals, 10 silver and five bronze.
A total of 25 Forensic students, under the direction of Danette Tellijohn and Betty Groboski, headed to the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus on April 20. Students enjoyed a trip to the mall, dinner at Olive Garden and then turned on their speaking talents for a 7 p.m. performance.
On Saturday morning they headed down to Madison’s famous State Street. They were rewarded with a sunny, cloudless morning of browsing the farmer’s market on four sides of the state Capitol, shopping on State Street, listening to street musicians and relaxing with friends.
Forensics has been practicing since early December, and participation in tournaments and competitions throughout February and March paid off big time for these talented young speakers.
