When clubs were announced at the end of the first semester, senior Christina E. spearheaded an effort to establish the school’s first Forensics team. This inaugural team is comprised of five students and coached by Theatre teacher Catie O’Donnell.

We are incredibly proud of the founding Forensics team at CRJHS! This truly was a student led effort. They put together their competitive speeches only a few weeks before the first tournament, and blew the judges away with their performances,” O’Donnell said.

Their season is a huge success with all five students making it to the District level tournament, and three students, Amir S., Christina E. and Ruby M., competing in the State tournament! The students submitted their state video performances and results will be announced later this month. Congratulations to the Forensics team on a successful first season!
