Forensics/Debate Team Debut Season

Congratulations to our Forensics team for an excellent season thus far!  You may remember that our team and teacher are sponsored through the Critical Thinking Funds and anonymous donations provided to the Goochland Education Foundation.  Without your support this amazing program for our students would not be possible.  The students will showcase their talents this Wednesday (see below).

Here is a note from Mr. Burch, our Forensics Team Teacher and Coach:

Please congratulate members of the Forensics Team for their stellar performance at districts last week.

Russell Gambino and Adrian Miller won 1st place for their performance in humorous duo. They will advance to regionals as members of the James River District team.

The following students also placed in their event:

  • Chad Johnson (4th in Prose)

  • Lilly Johnson (3rd in Original Oratory) who will also advance to regionals on the JRD Team!

  • Hannah Wagner (4th in Impromptu)

  • Noelle Ware (5th in Impromptu)

  • Chase Ray (5th in Original Oratory)

Overall, Goochland placed third in the competition. Not too bad for a first year team!

If you are interested in seeing these students perform, next Wednesday, February 13, at 7 PM in the GHS auditorium, the Speech and Debate students will be putting on a forensics showcase for the community.

Thank you for your time!
