On Saturday, Jan. 25, the West Delaware Speech Team competed at the District Large Group Speech competition. Out of the 31 events, 19 qualified for the state contest. State Speech will be held on Feb. 8 at Dubuque Senior High School.

“We had many groups make it to state. There was a couple that we thought for sure would make it, but didn’t, so that was a heartbreaker,” Head Coach Abby Osborne said. “However, that’s the reality of speech. Sometimes it’s just one judge in one day that may not like what you’re doing.”
