On March 12, ECHS FFA loaded on a bus to participate in a public speaking contest as well as varsity quiz bowl. Rylan Robb attended public speaking as an extemporaneous JV speaker and Libby Kincart attended as a prepared varsity speaker. Cage Metcalf and Kassidi Metcalf represented FFA as the creed speakers this year, as well. Rylan placed third at section and Libby placed second and will continue on to District 5 public speaking.

Varsity quiz bowl was held the same night and the team took home first place for the first time. The team consisted of all sophomores. The members included Nate Shilling, Emma Wiseman, Callie Messerole, Carissa Jefferson and Rylan Robb. Cage Metcalf filled in for Rylan while Rylan was giving his speech.

Overall, this was a great night for all the speakers and the quiz bowl team and we wish them the best of luck in future competitions.
