Speech team competes, places in recent competitions

The SPSU Speech team, coached by Prof. Misty York of ETCMA, finished its last tournament of the semester after garnering a number of honors.

At Gainesville State College on Oct. 1, Kinga Grewszecka, a junior majoring in technical communication, placed fifth in the persuasive speaking category. Sophomore Ayana Reyes, an architecture major, placed first in novice program oral interpretation as well as fourth in program oral interpretation. Senior Toby Pope, a technical communication major, placed second in program oral interpretation and received the Award of Excellence for impromptu speaking.

At a competition at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Oct. 15, sophomore Tyler Maran, a mechanical engineering major, placed first in the novice poetry category. 

The team regularly competes against much larger institutions, such as Florida State University and the University of Alabama, and most teams are made up of speech majors. Congratulations to all SPSU speech competitors!
