The Cameron University Forensics team continues its winning ways, taking home six awards in three individual events as well as the 2nd Place Overall Sweepstakes at the OSTCA Invitational held at Rogers State University. The forensics tournament featured teams from Oklahoma institutions of higher education.
“Traveling to Rogers State University provided a wonderful opportunity for our competitors to bond as a team and to prepare for their competitions,” said Katie Stringer, director of CU’s forensics team. “Although ours is a relatively young team, we continue to grow with each tournament.”
CU fields three competitors in Poetry. Ian Snyder, Mabank, Texas, claimed first place; Braydon Hunter, Okmulgee, took second place; and Micah Elroy, Marlow, won the fifth place award.
In Program Oral Interpretation, Elroy took first place, and Teague Fox, Tuttle, finished in second place.
Hunter placed first in Informative Speaking.
The tournament took place in conjunction with the annual conference of the Oklahoma Speech Theatre Communication Association. During the conference, Stringer was named OSTCA Forensics chair for a three-year term.
