Announcing the 2018-2019 East Ridge Speech Team!

Thanks to everyone who attended auditions for the East Ridge High School Speech Team this week. We saw an incredible variety of talent from all who participated and we are excited for another great season of competition! Unfortunately, we were not able to place every person who auditioned on the team. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the coaching staff if you have any questions about your audition.

For students who did make the team this year, there will be an all-team meeting for parents and students this Monday, November 19th at 6:30PM in the Black Box Theatre at East Ridge. Please contact Alex Carlson if you cannot attend.

Below is the announcement of the 2018-2019 East Ridge Speech Team:
