Speech and Date had a competition at Seven Lakes on February 10. Seniors Sammy Sarabia and Leo Pratt placed third in duet acting. Junior Hannah Rutherford placed second in duet acting and sophomore Tiffany Hoang placed second in duet acting as well.

“I felt nervous,because no matter how long you work for it you always feel unprepared,” Sarabia said. “You feel like someone’s going to be better than your points and arguments.”

To prepare for the competition, she listened to the judges during their critiques and adapted her style. She learned where she needed to improve.

 

“[I need to work on] definitely eye contact and making sure my points are smooth as the point of the pieces get across,” she said.

The group will continue working for their state qualifying competition.

“Right now, I’m very close to state qual, so that’s basically what I want to do,” she said. “Next week, we have a tournament where we decide who goes to nationals and who doesn’t and I’d really like to go to nationals in June.”

Sarabia has competed in the past in duet, dramatic interpretation and POI.

“Dramatic interp is basically where you perform a ten minute play by yourself and you act out different characters and you do it without props or a set,” she said. “POI is a collection of different things like speeches, songs, and different things in general. You combine them and make that into a show.”

Make sure to keep up with this team’s schedule as the year progresses. Look forward to their TFA State competition in San Antonio on March 1-3 and show them all of your support.
