Third CWC forensic team member qualifies for nationals

Mar 14, 2014 From staff reports

A third member of Central Wyoming College's forensics team qualified for a national tournament after competing in an event at Glendale Community College in Phoenix.

Jodon Barthel joins Daryon Baumberger and Riley Moore to compete at the National Individual Events Tournament in early April.

Baumberger and Barthel took fourth place in duo interpretation at both tournaments, which was enough for the pair to qualify for the national event. Duo interpretation is an event in which two students work together to perform a cutting from a piece of literature or dramatic script.

Baumberger, in her first year at CWC, had qualified previously by finishing second in after dinner speaking at a tournament at the University of Utah. Moore qualified in persuasive speaking at nationals this year, giving CWC a total of four entries.

In addition to the NIET, the trio also will represent CWC at Phi Rho Pi, the community college national tournament April 7 to April 12 in Denver, said coach Josh House.
