Forensics Has Great Weekend at McKendree University

Truman’s Forensic Union took a group of three competitors to the inaugural City of Cedars Swing hosted by McKendree University in Lebanon, Ill., Nov. 14-15.
On the first day of the tournament, senior Sarah Muir placed second in extemporaneous speaking and sophomore Brian Kantanka placed first in poetry interpretation. On the second day of the tournament, Kantanka returned to finals in poetry, placing fifth, and also placed third in dramatic interpretation. Muir also returned to final rounds, this time placing fourth in impromptu speaking.
The team is done traveling for the semester, but will start the spring semester with the Gorlock Gala, hosted by Webster University in St. Louis in late January.   
Participation in the forensics program is open to any Truman student in good standing, regardless of prior speech and debate experience.
