The Forensics League held the James Madison Winter Forensics Festival Jan. 7-8. The tournament was a huge fundraiser for the students. It was a tournament held for all other schools in the area to compete in.
“Taking into consideration that none of my students had actually run a tournament before, I’d say it was a smashing success,” sponsor Chris Mifflin said.
The tournament ran on time and there was a surplus of food in concessions and judges were abundant in number. Teachers, alumni and volunteers within the forensics circuit judged at the tournament.
“The payoff was great. We made a lot of money, the team benefited a lot and it was all for a good cause. I would definitely host one in the future,” freshman Lindsey Boyd said.
With this tournament being such a success, there are more tournaments on the horizon in the years to come.
