The WT Forensics Team, according to school officials, competed against 14 other schools from around the country in the speech tournament hosted virtually from Lincoln, Nebraska.

“It’s absolutely wonderful to see my work paying off, and I’m so proud of the rest of the team as well,” Bartz said. “They’re all doing amazing and I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish what I did without them inspiring me to be the best I can be.”
