UW-Eau Claire Forensics Team
Makes Name at L.E. Norton Invitational

RELEASED: Nov. 9, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — Karen Morris, director of forensics at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, said this year's forensics team of mostly freshmen and sophomores did very well with four finalists and the team taking 10th place Nov. 3-4 at the L.E. Norton Invitational , one of the largest and most competitive forensics tournaments of the season.

Forty-three schools from across the nation participated in the tournament at Bradley University in Peoria, Ill. All events were divided into varsity and novice categories, where at least two events had over 100 entries.

"The results may not reflect this, but our very young team did very well in their rounds and I think they made a name for themselves," said Morris.

Individual results were as follows:

Senior Hilary Rasmussen, Eau Claire, took second place in poetry as well as sixth place in program oral interpretation.

Freshman Meghan Pickard, Eau Claire, placed fifth in novice impromptu and qualified for the National Forensics Association tournament.

Sophomore Nick Miller, Hales Corners, took sixth in after-dinner speaking.

Junior Eric Plantenberg, Monroe, advanced to the semi-finals in persuasion.
