The Pike Speech Team Spring Fling Tournament Results
The Pike Speech Team Spring Fling Tournament Results

On Saturday, April 7th, 28 Pike Speech Team students competed in the Spring Fling Tournament in Newton, MA. 13 schools competed in this tournament with a total of 358 student entries. Pike students competed in the regular speech tournament events and embraced the fling events of Impromptu Sales, Team Improv, Original Literature and Tongue Twister Races.

The day was a success in large part due to the hard work of our esteemed parent judges, dedicated ninth grade judge Max Fan and tech savvy Mr. Henning.

More than half of the Pike Speech Team students placed in the top eight or earned an honorable mention including eighth grader Emilia Sanz-Rios who won first place in both Free Verse/Poetry and Prose. Congratulations to all Pike speech team students who represented the school so well. Go Pike!
