Cameron University speech and debate team kicks off spring competition season with impressive results

The Cameron University Forensics team recently traveled to the Cowtown Swing, a tournament hosted by Texas Christian University. Three CU students competed in 13 events, making it to the final rounds in 10 and claiming second place in the Individual Event Sweepstakes.

“Each of the Aggie competitors had a full slate of competition,” says Sarah Collins, director of the Forensics program. “Taking second place in the Individual Event Sweepstakes is an outstanding accomplishment given we had only three competitors. I’m beyond proud of each of them and want to express my appreciation for their hard work and dedication.”

Senior Savanna Sanders, Madill, placed first in Persuasive Speaking, Poetry, and Dramatic Interpretation. The addition of a third place in Prose resulted in Sanders placing second in Individual Sweepstakes.

Senior Sav Price, Lavon, Texas, placed first in Informative Speaking, third in Poetry, and fourth in Programmed Oral Interpretation.  

Sophomore Kristopher Mayfield, Okmulgee, placed third in Program Oral Interpretation, fifth in After Dinner Speaking and sixth in Impromptu Speaking.

As a team, the students won 2nd place individual event sweepstakes-- which is outstanding, given that there were only 3 of them!  The team travels next weekend to the Gorlok Gala hosted by Webster University in St. Louis, MO.

The Aggies competition season continues at the Gorlok Gala hosted by Webster University.
