Bulldog speech finishes strong at Polson

| December 22, 2021 1:00 AM

The Whitefish speech and debate team earned third place in sweepstakes points at the Polson Invitational last weekend.

Several Whitefish competitors placed at the meet adding to the point total for the team. Columbia Falls earned first place followed by Frenchtown in second at the meet.

“I feel this winter break could be a real turning point for the team,” Whitefish coach Sara Mueller said. “We’ve still got to up our game in several areas and get some consistency in competition, but we’re ready to put in the work for January. We have some strong senior leadership that is beginning to pay off.”

Whitefish is set to compete again on Jan. 15 for its home meet.
