Liberal High School had five students qualify for the Speech and Drama Nationals at the Diocese District qualifying tournament in Scott City last weekend March 19th. Those qualifying include:

Sam Herrera &; Leif Volden in Duo Interpretation with their Duo “Date with a Stranger”
Ivanna Estrada in Oral Interpretation of Literature with her poem “Local Anesthesia” and her prose “Blue Dress”
Carlos Roman in Extemporaneous Speaking
and Gumaro Gonzales in Lincoln Douglas debate.

These individuals will travel to Washington DC for the Catholic Forensic League National Tournament at the end of May.

Liberal High School and some other area schools in Kansas compete in two different speech and debate leagues.  Tournaments under the jurisdiction of KSHSAA, including Liberal’s own hosted tournament, operate in the NSDA league, the National Speech and Debate Association.  The Catholic Forensic League is open to public as well as nonpublic schools, and the CFL has attracted smaller rural schools in recent years seeking additional opportunities to compete.
