TRYOUT PACKET 2018

DHS 4n6 "Capitalizes" on winning season in nation's capital!

(WASHINGTON, DC)  The Danville High School Forensics Team competed at the 67th Annual National Catholic Forensic League's National Tournament May 26 and 27 in Washington, DC. Over 2700 students from 558 American high schools, the winners of 66 diocesan tournaments held around the US, converged on the capital city to compete in four preliminary rounds and four awards rounds for the national titles. Danville's Emma Merryman advanced through approximately 250 competitors in Oratory to advance into the second award round, the National Quarterfinals (top 24) before being eliminated. Additionally, Danville's other four entries all placed in the top third of all entries in the contest though not in the awards rounds. The team members who advanced to the national contest -- Merryman, Joseth Warner, Claire Strysick, Britton Minks, Barrett Minks, Haley Hopkins, and Katie Critchfield -- were able to see sights of the nation's capital the day prior to the contest.

Huzzah for our four NSDA competitors -- Caroline, Becky, and (as of 6/14) Joseth and Haley!

Originally, only Caroline qualified for NSDA this year (with five of the speech categories' first alternates occupied by DHS students). Then Becky was moved up from second alternate into the Senate to competitor. Then just before we left, Haley and Joseth moved up from third alternates to competitors. We had a great trip to Florida and enjoyed seeing Mr. Meadows become the first KY Coach to get a fifth diamond award.

Welcome to the website for Danville Forensics, one of Kentucky's top high school speech teams. Usually around 40 members, the team competes at tournaments around Kentucky and the nation with a regular season of late October through mid-March plus national tournaments in May and June.  

Danville Forensics is a proud member of the National Speech and Debate Association, the National Catholic Forensic League, the Kentucky High School Speech League, and the Kentucky Educational Speech and Drama Association. 
DHS is the only Kentucky team in history to win all four of these organizations' state championships in one year or ever (in 2008, 2012, and 2017). Cool.
