EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire forensics team placed 17th at the American Forensics Association National Individual Events Tournament. The tournament was hosted April 7-9 by the Minnesota State University-Mankato campus.

Eight UW-Eau Claire students traveled to participate in their events at the tournament. More than 85 schools competed in the event and only 20 schools were awarded team sweepstakes trophies.
