MCS Drama Team Demonstrates Superior Skills Once Again!

On Monday, March 6th, the MCS Drama team, consisting of 34 students, traveled to participate in the annual ACSI Speech Meet in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. Of those 34 students, only 11 (eleven) had participated in the past, making the success of this meet even more meaningful. MCS won the first-place trophy in 10 of the 13 competing categories which included a first in Reader’s Theatre (five students), a first in Duet Acting (2 students) and a tie for first among three MCS students in Children’s Literature, resulting in 17 students getting first place trophies! In total, MCS performances won 28 blue ribbons, 14 red, and one white. Middletown Christian also received the annual school trophy for highest accumulative team score, an accomplishment by the MCS team almost every year since 2003. In addition, there were three students on the team who won two first place trophies because they competed in two different categories. Hannah Spahr won for Duet Acting and Children’s Literature, and Sandy Singh won for Humorous Monologue and Prose/Poetry Interpretation, and Hannah Maule won for Reader’s Theatre and Solo Acting. This team worked hard to accomplish their goals and glorify our Lord by developing those special talents He has given them. We are especially proud of their respectful spirits and their trust in God for the end results during their participation in the meet. The following is a list of the other first place trophy winners: Zach Byrum, Expository; Olivia King, Children’s Literature; Emily Riechman, Original Oratory; Katie Davis, Bible Memorization; Devan Mullins, Impromptu; Julia Riegert, Children’s Literature; Anna Zhao, Duet Acting; Hannah Maule, Maddie Green, Meaghan McCarter, Chase Price, Shannon Fluegge, Reader’s Theatre.
