Two Sterling College forensics students traveled to the Missouri Mule Invitational for their first tournament this season. Junior Joseph Bahr of Harker Heights, Texas, brought home the most awards for Sterling College, finishing in the top six in three competitions. The group traveled to the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg for the competition between 21 schools Oct. 19-24.

“The tournament went well for our first competition of the season. I was pleased with the effort that the students put in prior to the competition and the results at the tournament suggested that their hard work is paying dividends. I anticipate continued success from both of the aforementioned individuals,” said Ken Troyer, forensics coach.

Bahr earned sixth place in persuasive speaking, fourth place in impromptu speaking and third place in extemporaneous speaking.

Freshman Paige Sherraden from Plainville, Kansas, placed seventh in persuasive speaking.

The next competition for the Sterling College Debate and Forensics team will be at Carl Albers State College in Poteau, Okla., Nov. 2-4.
