The Pike School Speech Team had an outstanding showing at the kickoff Turkey Fest tournament at Milton Academy on Sunday, November 19.
A total of 28 students, including 12 novices, competed in eight of the ten events. Students listed in bold below received first place in at least one of their three rounds. The two underlined students earned what's called a "picket fence"; first place in all three of their rounds. Congratulations to all Speech Team competitors!
The Speech Team is grateful for our fantastic judges. Parent judges; Angie Chen, Nicole Jacksion, Pawan Roy, Sandya Gol, alumni judge Clayton Rabold, and Pike 9 student judge Sarah Wang.
