NLS Speech - Off to a Great Start!

Our Speech team has had a fantastic start to their season! In January, the team took 1st place at the Little Falls Invitational where they competed against both double A and single A teams. Most recently, on February 1st, they attended Albany’s Invitational and left with a 2nd place team finish, in Large School category, and nine of our 22 students placed after the three initial rounds. Head Coach Burandt commented, “We are still only a few meets in to our Speech season, but all their hard work and dedication is really showing through and I couldn’t be prouder!”
