Maroon Speech Team opens with Success!

The Butte Central Speech team, The Talking Maroons, participated Saturday at the Hamilton Invitational.

Team members Ethan Andersch, Hallie Kellicut and Michael Hand competed with 161 other speakers from 14 schools.

Hallie Kellicut, a sophomore and a veteran placed seventh in memorized public address. Hallie is coming off last year’s Covid season where she advanced to the state tournament.

Ethan Andersch, a junior, is a new member of the team, competing in impromptu speaking. He won the third round of his event and placed second in the fourth round, barely missing qualifying for finals by one point.

Michael Hand, a freshman, is one of the team’s Lincoln-Douglas debaters. Michael looks to be a strong competitor on the debate stage.
