2017 WVIFA State Tournament

On February 25-26, we traveled to Fairmont State University to compete in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Forensics Association’s annual state tournament.  We had a great time seeing old friends, making new ones, and continuing to show our talents!

Proud of this group!

All told, we had a great time!  We took 1st Place in Team Debate for the second straight year!
