Poth High School’s UIL academic team traveled to Devine on March 5 to compete in an invitational meet.

The journalism contestants took first-place team, defeating journalism teams from Pearsall, Hondo, Crystal City, Bandera, La Vernia, D’Hanis, Pleasanton, and Poteet.

Senior Emily Flieller earned second place in news and feature writing. Sophomore Clay Rotter earned second place in headline writing. Sophomore Joshua Churning earned fourth place in feature writing. Other members of the journalism team were sophomore Molly Jarzombek and senior Matthew Mutz.

Rotter also earned first place in current issues and events. Flieller earned sixth place in calculator applications.

Freshman Rosa Rosales competed in persuasive speaking, and sophomores Craig Kilgore and Cody Soto competed in prose and poetry, respectively. “I’m glad I went because I learned a lot about my pieces, and I was able to make new friends,” Soto said.

Sophomore Jake Sekula competed in Lincoln-Douglas debate. “It was a great learning experience to compete against veteran debaters like those from La Vernia,” Sekula said.

Other students who participated were sophomore Kenya Barrientos, junior Isidore Jarzombek, and sophomore Koltan Weaks. “We had a great time, learned lots of new stuff, and met a lot of new people,” Barrientos said.
