This weekend, the Chabot Gabbing Gladiators went down south to Woodland Hills, CA for 4 days of the California Community College Forensics Association State Championship Tournament (try saying that 5 times fast ... oh wait, we can!).  The team consisted of Richard Jaykins, Jeramie Brown, Ben Pierson, Jenna Hewitt, Sarah Knight, and Jeffrey Chu. And we got to bring some pretty, shiny things home!!!  

Congratulations go out to our State Silver Medalists!!!!!:

Sarah Knight in Informative Speaking and Jenna Hewitt in Speech To Entertain!!!  

Also, congratulations go out to our Bronze Medalists:

Jenna Hewitt (again!) in Lincoln Douglas Debate
Jeffrey Chu in both Speech to Entertain and Prose Interpretation of Literature.

Overall, this put Chabot as 6th in the State amongst schools with a Limited Entry!!  A great result for a small team on a low budget! This team worked incredibly hard this week, leaving at 9 AM Wednesday morning and getting back to Hayward at 9 PM Sunday night. The entire team deserves a huge round of applause!

If you would like to see this (soon to be) National Award winning team in action, come by and/or send your students to the Little Theater on May 2nd and see what amazing students Angela and Jason are fortunate enough to coach!  See you there!
