MHS forensics

Fresh off the team’s standout performance at the VHSL state tournament, two members of the Mathews High School forensics team (Sandra Baer, at left, and Grace Lewis, along with faculty advisor Steve Casper) addressed the May 9 meeting of the Mathews County Woman’s Club. Baer placed first the state in the Prose category, while Lewis came in second in Poetry. Forensics is a supported scholastic sport. At the competition, each student is given 10 minutes to speak on his or her topic which can range from poetry and original oratory to impromptu where they are given only seven minutes to prepare. Other topics, such as published literature and Interpretation, where the meaning is brought to life, can take up to several months to study and prepare. The MCWC gave the team a $100 donation to further their dedication to the written language.
