Waterville Senior High School Speech Team 2020-2021
The Year Of Covid-19
“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.
“I’m sure the WSHS Speech Team will have an awesome 2020-2021 year even during these difficult Covid times. I know this year will bring good things to all involved. Thanks everyone for all the support. Keep up the great work!“
March 27, 2021 – The Speech Team Won The Sweeps Award For Highest Point Count At This Saturday’s Maine District National Qualifiers Tournament.
