Outstanding performer awards for the Swedes went to Mann, Josh Clark, Jeramie VanAcker, Ryan Ostendorf and Betsy Potter.
Eustis-Farnam also had two outstanding performers—Dustin Koch and Melanie Johnson—noted in their play “Cliques and Cafeterias.”
In addition to Gothenburg and Eustis-Farnam, other schools competing in the contest were Lexington, Hershey, Brady, Cody-Kilgore, Loup City, Adams Central, McCook and Ravenna.
