The Forensics team placed 12th at St. Thomas Aquinas on Saturday, Feb. 4.

Forensics teacher Jeanette Hardesty was satisfied with the team.

“I was very pleased with the team’s performance,” Hardesty said. “The meet at St. Thomas Aquinas was large with some rounds having 40 students, and only six students can advance to the finals.”
