Warner takes second, Her fourth at state speech

Two Cottonwood County state speech qualifiers brought home medals from the 2014 Class A State Speech Tournament held at Blaine High School in Blaine Saturday.

Windom Area High School senior Blake Warner captured a second-place medal in great speeches. Analyzing and reciting excerpts from Adolph Hitler's propaganda oratory, Speech at the Berlin Sports Palace, Warner was third after three preliminary rounds, receiving 1s in two rounds and a 3 in the other round.

In the finals, Warner received 1s from two judges and an 8 from the third judge. Amber Preuss of Adrian took the gold medal.

Meanwhile, Westbrook-Walnut Grove's Zuag Paj Her brought home a fourth-place medal in serious interpretation of drama. Her piece, Mother of Him by Evan Placey, earned her two second-place rankings and a third in the three preliminary rounds, which placed her fifth heading into finals.

In the finals, Her received a 3, 4 and 5 from the three judges, which left in a tie for third place. She finished fourth on judges' preference.

Three other area speakers also competed at the state tournament. Windom siblings Aaron and Emily Axford competed in creative expression and drama, respectively, while Mt. Lake Christian's Danica Dick competed in storytelling. However, none of the three advanced to the final eight.

For more on the state speech tournament, see the stories on the Education page in the April 16 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
