Waterville Senior High School Speech Team 2019-2020

“The strength of a team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
Phil Jackson – former American professional basketball player, coach, and executive in the National Basketball Association.


The WSHS Speech Team had a really awesome first year 2018-2019. Our team won the fifth-place trophy at the State Tournament out of 21 teams. Also at States William Jackson placed second in Poetry, Emily Campbell placed third in Poetry and Colette, Carrillo placed second in prose.


I know this year will bring good things to all involved. Thanks everyone for all the support. Keep up the great work!
