MHS Forensics net six awards at Iowa City High Classic

The Marshalltown Forensics Team struck it big at the Iowa City High Classic tournament over the weekend. Overall, six awards were presented to Marshalltown students, while those not receiving awards still competed well.

At her first tournament ever, Zeina El Jahjah placed first in Lincoln-Douglas debate. Zeina secured five wins and only one loss during the tournament to place first. Zeina also earned third in LD speaker awards.

Gwen Morrison walked away with two awards: second in Prose and fourth in Dramatic Interpretation. Gwen also performed her DI piece for her team and a small group of firemen and women at the Heartland Inn on Friday night! The firemen and women truly enjoyed Gwen’s performance and gave her many accolades.

Christian Kremer-Terry brought home second in LD speaker awards, while Chandler Fisher placed fourth in Poetry at the event.

Congratulations to everyone who competed, and now it is time to get ready for districts on February 10-11.
