Cedarville, Ohio— The Cedarville University Forensics Team traveled to Berry College in Rome, Ga., this spring for the national speech tournament of the National Forensics Association. Nearly 75 teams from across the country competed in this five-day tournament.
Junior Karen Williams vied against 180 other students in the impromptu speaking category and took fifth in the nation. She is the second student in Cedarville’s history to advance to the finals at nationals.
Cedarville’s team placed eighth in the President’s I Division and 20th overall, allowing it to remain a top-20 team for each year it has attended the tournament.
The team is coached by Matt Moore and Derrick Green, both assistant professors of communication arts.
