The Fort Scott Community College forensics team headed to Metropolitan Community College-Longview in Lee's Summit, Mo., Friday and Saturday to compete in a two-day swing tournament.

Led by Kait Doherty, who made finals in Dramatic Interpretation (DI), the squad finished the first day of the swing being recognized as the top junior college. Day two of the competition led to four more Greyhound finalists medaling. Doherty continued her winning ways, again breaking her DI to finals, but this time she included her Prose.

Garic Tinsley joined Kait in Prose finals while also placing in Poetry.

"We were a little short this weekendas illness and other issues dropped our entry by 10 events," FSCC head coach Brian Weilert said. "A few more were under the weather and made the trip. We competed well with several more events very close to breaking.

"We are still working to put the right pieces together that can consistently compete. This causes students to work to memorize on short notice. Garic just changed to a new (poem) a few days before the tournament. I was happy to see his work pay off."

The team will be back in action next month at Cameron University.

What Brian has accomplished in such a short time at FSCC with this team is remarkable. Congratulations to a very talented group of students and their coach - J.D. Ettore
