The Exeter-Milligan speech team had a busy schedule recently. Competing in three meets in eight days. The first was on Saturday, February 17 in Sutton. Facing tough competition, the E-M team brought home three medals. Troy Kallhoff in informative and Logan Krupicka in humorous prose, each placing sixth. Kmila Benitez finished seventh in POI.
Between the two Saturday meets, Exeter-Milligan traveled to Meridian for the CRC conference speech meet on Wednesday. The Timberwolves advanced two participants to the final round, with three others just missing by less than two points. Benitez placed fifth in POI, while Morgan White reached finals, but finished seventh in serious prose. In extemporaneous, Kallhoff finished out of the finals, as did Krupicka in humorous, tying in place, but each just short on points. The same can be said for the OID team of White, Kylie Oldehoeft, Selah Petersen, and Tucker Svec.
At the McCool Junction meet on Saturday, February 24, Benitez and Kallhoff reached the finals in POI and extemporaneous speaking, respectively. Benitez finished second in her event, while Kallhoff brought home the third place medal. Again, White just missed out on a medal in serious and Krupicka in humorous. Svec performed well, also just short of the medal round in humorous impromptu. E-M will be preparing for the District competition, which will be held on March 6 at Nebraska Lutheran High School in Waco.
