The Cameron University forensics team continued its competition season at the Carl Albert State Tournament in Poteau recently. The Aggies competed against teams from 13 colleges and universities from four states in the two-tier tournament.
“For Cameron to receive a sweepstakes award with only six students competing was outstanding,” says Sarah Collins, Director of Forensics. “I am proud of their continued work.”
At the Carl Albert State Tournament, contested on Friday and Saturday, the Aggies finished third in debate sweepstakes and second in combined (i.e., individual events and debate) sweepstakes.
Sav Price, Lavon, Texas, took the tournament championship in Impromptu Speaking. In other contests, Price finished second in Informative Speaking, fourth in Programmed Oral Interpretation and was the sixth place speaker in IPDA debate.
Teammate Kristopher Mayfield, Okmulgee, also brought home a tournament championship, ranking first in Poetry. Mayfield also finished third in Impromptu Speaking and fourth in After Dinner Speaking.
Dallas Strong, Elgin, finished third in Dramatic Interpretation.
At the second tournament hosted by Northeastern State University on Sunday, the team finished second in Sweepstakes.
Mayfield once again was the tournament champion in Poetry; he placed fourth in After Dinner Speaking and fifth in Programmed Oral Interpretation.
Price finished third in Impromptu Speaking and fourth in Programmed Oral Interpretation. Teague Fox, Mustang, finished sixth in Impromptu Speaking.
Also competing and contributing to team awards at both tournaments were Isabelle Chandler, Apache, and Rachael Rowe, Sallisaw.
The team takes two competitors to the University of Central Missouri tournament and then hits the road with a full squad for the Storm Classic hosted by Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
