Smith qualifies for state speech meet

The New Prague High School Speech Team competed in the Section 1AA Tournament in Northfield Tuesday, April 8. Freshman Madeliene Smith took first in her category of creative expression, qualifying her for state competition.

Sixteen students on the local team faced stiff competition in thirteen categories from forensic powerhouses such as Lakeville North and Prior Lake. Those schools took first and second place in the team awards.
