Please take time to congratulate coach Sheryl Thomsen for all her work and dedication to the team to secure this win.  Students that participated on our Forensics Team were spread across the state of Iowa.  Sheryl worked with these students both virtually and in person to prepare them for the competition. 


We have so much appreciation for the many people from NCASB that worked many long hours to put together the virtual meet so our students were able to participate. 


Thank you to all the staff that assisted Sheryl and the students during this event.  It took a village and without our wonderful coach and staff this could not have happened!
