The goal this season for the St. Croix Central forensics team was to put out a quality presentation each time the team members competed.

With that in mind, all eight SCC students on the forensics team were able to qualify for the Wisconsin High School Forensics Association state competition, which will be held on Friday, April 21 in Madison.

Central students who qualified for state are Annika Zehm, Carolyn Morris, Evan Tredal, Robyn Pfeifer, Jillian Turbeville, Nicole Hetletved, Camille Budrow and Ryan Christensen. Turbeville competed in farrago and Tredal in four-minute speech. Christensen, Budrow and Zehm competed in the prose division. Hetletved took part in public speech, while Pfeifer and Morris were involved in solo acting.

Central forensics coach Heather Jourdeans said the work ethic of the students is the product they put before the judges.

"Every one of the students on the team is such an upstanding, hard-working student, in the classroom, in their other activities, and in forensics," Jourdeans said.

Jourdeans is in her 12th year as the forensics adviser, "and every year it seems the groups get more fun and entertaining."
