The NECC Speech Team didn’t know what to expect as it headed up north Friday for its first speech tournament of the season, the Robert Littlefield and Cindy’s IE Tournament at Concordia College in Moorehead, MN, hosted by North Dakota State University, the University of North Dakota and Concordia College.  
The competitors came home with a 2nd place win for team sweepstakes for Sunday’s tournament, and a 2nd place win for team sweepstakes for the swing tournament overall.   A total of 32 trophies were won. Coach Terry Nelson considers this “an unbelievable, smashing start” to the year.  
Medal winners were:
Musa Fofana (Gambia)- 2nd place impromptu speaking, 2nd place poetry (Sunday’s tournament). 
 
Jasmine Lee Phander (Ewing, NE) – a freshman, took home 1st place (and top novice) for her prose on Sunday (and other trophies).
 
Tim Browning (Bancroft, NE) – a freshman, several top novice awards, placed in duo interpretation and prose.
 
Drew Sempek (Stromsburg, NE) – placed both days in poetry, prose, and duo interpretation.
 
Joe Lose (Kansas City, MO) – placed both days in duo interpretation and after dinner speaking.
 
They will be leaving for their next tournament Thursday. It will be held at Casper College in Casper, WY.
