KEARNEY – Nebraska City Speech team member Ellie Higgins did something that’s uncommon among sophomores at the Nebraska School Activities Association State Speech Championships.
She competed in finals in two events at the University of Nebraska-Kearney, earning fifth place in humorous prose and sixth place in serious prose on Thursday.
The duet acting team of Lillian Frields and Christian Tietz placed 10th overall and did not make finals. Erik Rodriguez placed 17th overall in extemporaneous speaking.
Higgins, Frields and Tietz will compete at the national NIETOC meet in May at Millard North High School.
