Forensics Team Rocks JRD!

The Forensics team had a stellar performance last night at Randolph Henry High School at the James River District Tournament.
Russell G. and Adrian M. won 1st place for their performance in humorous duo. They will advance to regionals as members of the James River District team.
Lilly J. received third place for Original Oratory, and will also compete at the regional level.
Overall, Goochland placed third in the competition. Not too bad for a first year team!
If you are interested in seeing these students perform, next Wednesday at 7 PM in the GHS auditorium, the Speech and Debate students will be putting on a forensics showcase for the community.
