It was an outstanding day for the Westerners’ Large Group Speech Team this past Saturday at the State Large Group Speech Contest in Le Mars.

All four of the varsity groups earned the highest rating they can receive from the judges — “I” Superior ratings from each of the three judges, said Akron-Westfield Large Group Speech Coach Susan Anderson.

Even A-W’s Junior Varsity freshmen group received an “I” rating from one of their three judges.

“This is great for freshmen competing all day with varsity groups,” said Anderson.

“We had a sweep,” Anderson wrote in a Facebook message, “and they were deserved.”

“They had remarkable performance and by far the best they have done all year,” she wrote. “So proud of these speechers.”

“They put up with me prodding and pushing and not settling for so-so,” said Anderson, who stepped back in as coach after retiring from the position Spring 2017. “I wanted them to be the best they could be and did they every show me what they have.”
