The Whitehall High School Speech and Debate team had great results at last week's Divisional Tournament in Missoula.

Senior Rebecca Meyer led the way for the Trojans with a first-place finish in Impromptu. Karlie Wagner finished third in Humorous Oral Interpretation, and Issie Coleman and Bradley Morrison finished fifth in Humorous Duo. All four qualified for the state meet scheduled for Thursday and Friday in Three Forks. Meyer also qualified for state in 2018.

Head Coach Dr. Kathy Meyer said it was so exciting to see the team succeed at the competition that included teams from Class B and C, and is the largest division in the state.

"I was so proud of them," she said.

In her first year as head coach, Meyer lauded the prior coach, teachers, and administration for helping the team, adding they all played a part in helping build an experienced team and a successful program.

Looking towards the state meet, Meyer wants to the kids to do their best and to feel good about their performances, and at the same time achieve success.

Look for state results in next week's edition.
