Eagle speech team wins district

Seven qualify for state meet.

There may be some advantages to not climbing aboard a bus bound for district speech at the crack of dawn or even earlier.

Brady hosted its first district speech meet Friday and captured the D1-6 championship with seven team members qualifying for the state meet this week in Kearney.

“The best part of the day was being able to announce that our team had won the D1-6 district championship,” said first-year coach Dawn Jobman. “Every single member of the team had a part in the points that eventually gave us first. I am so proud of each and every student.”

It’s not the largest number of state qualifiers for the Eagles but that doesn’t make the team victory and the individual successes any less sweet for Jobman.

“We also had some amazing efforts by some students,” she said.

Sophomore Sierra Quadhamer is a double state qualifier who returns to state after having made it to Kearney last year in persuasive speaking.

She finished first in the poetry division with her selections titled, “Obesity.” Quadhamer was also second in humorous prose with a speech titled, “Hobbies.”

Another Eagle returning to the state meet is Micah Most. The junior finished third in informative speaking with his speech titled, “Visual Aids.”
