Although the Trego forensics team wrapped up its regular season at Quinter on April 12 with no additional State qualifiers, the team brought home three medals and ended the season with two State qualifiers.
Abraham Pfannenstiel and Sadie Dinkel will represent Trego in Wichita for the State meet. At an earlier meet, Pfannenstiel and Dinkel earned the right to compete by getting a first-place in improvised duet acting. Dinkel also placed first in the informative speech category.
At Quinter, bringing in the best performance on the day, the team of Elyssa Carr and Shawnee Phillips ended the meet in fourth-place in an improvised duet act. Giving an informative speech, Pfannenstiel also received a fourth-place medal.
Other medalists for the team included Pfannenstiel, acting out a humorous solo; and Carr, giving an oration speech. Both took home fifth-place medals for their respective events.
Pfannenstiel and Dinkel will compete at Bishop Carroll High School in Wichita on May 3.
Seniors and juniors experienced an evening “Under the Sea” at the annual TCHS Prom.
The party venue—the old high school gym--was decorated with a sunken ship, exotic fish, colorful coral and a jewel-filled treasure chest. Balloon –filled “bubbles” and a wavy gossamer ceiling added to the underwater atmosphere.
Prior to the Prom dinner, the formally attired students arrived early for portraits taken by Leann’s Photography.
The dinner, served by the juniors’ parents and donated by Frontier Ag, included silver and fishnet-covered tables with large vases with live goldfish and floating candles as the centerpieces. Entrees included chicken or lasagna, served with salad, fruit, scalloped potatoes, corn and garlic bread. Junior Abigail Buchholz prepared sea-themed cakes for dessert.
After dinner, many people took in the Promenade, during which Emcee Carl Mohler announced the Prom attendees’ names as they modeled their formal attire. The backdrop for the Promenade, created by Lori Dietz, included a ship’s mast, anchor, and colorful coral.
Complete Music provided the music for the dance which followed.
“You provide the material; we will provide the labor” is the motto for the upcoming Senior-to-Senior Day to be held April 30, 2014.
The annual event is put on by a senior class to show appreciation to senior citizens who have supported them throughout their high school years.
Senior citizens who want senior students to complete such jobs as yard work, painting, gardening, window washing, computer maintenance or other jobs, must call 743-2061 by April 28. Jobs that require power equipment or ladders over six feet tall are not allowed.
There will be no alternate date for inclement weather.
