DHS hosts forensics tourney
Boone County High School forensics team took top honors at the 23rd annual Tournament of Firsts held at Danville High School Saturday, Nov. 19. Seventeen schools competed for the team trophies with Bardstown’s Bethlehem High in second, Rowan County third, Beechwood High fourth, Lexington Dunbar fifth, and LaRue County sixth in the team competition. Students competed in 14 speech events plus congressional debate for a full day of competition.
DHS, the reigning speech state champions, hosted the event and did not compete, with the exception of congressional debate. Danville senior Billy Critchfield placed second overall in congressional debate for the Speaking Admirals.
DHS will next compete at the Boone County Blizzard Blowout on Dec. 3.
