The TSB Forensics Club helped out their schoolmates with the swimming competition on Friday. Making the travel team for the Tigers were Anthony Bonetti, Ella Brown, Korey Nettles, Avery Mayberry, Abbey Pace, and Carlos Medrano.
 
On Saturday, the students competed in different Forensic categories.
This year’s open category was Story Telling. Both Ella Brown and Carlos Medrano took advantage of this fun category.  Ella Brown and Anthony Bonetti participated in the Impromptu Speaking category. Abbey Pace participated in Poetry, memorizing two William Shakespeare pieces, Korey Nettles participated in the Four-Minute Speech, and Avery Mayberry's Eight -minute speech topic was on gun laws and safety.
Carlos and Korey received praise for writing a great original piece for duos. The topic was of a radio host pretending to be a telemarketer that was harassing a customer. It was all a joke on the radio host’s end as the customer refused to allow the audio to air on the radio as he hung up the phone numerous times. Carlos played the radio host/telemarketer while Korey played the disgruntled customer. This duo received many laughs from the audience. Next time, we will be sure to publish their piece!
 
TSB Forensics took 6th place at Conference with Avery Mayberry taking 2nd in the Eight- minute speech, Anthony Bonetti taking 4th in Impromptu Speaking, and Korey Nettles taking 4th in the Four-minute speech. Great job, Forensics!
