On Nov. 2, Rosa Rosales, Clayton Jaskinia, and Daniel Soto competed at the 18th annual UIL speech and debate tournament at La Vernia High School. The meet consisted of 23 schools competing in Student Congress, LD Debate, CX Debate, persuasive speaking, informative speaking, prose, and poetry.

Sophomore Daniel Soto competed in persuasive speaking as well as prose. It was Daniel’s first time competing in persuasive, but that was definitely not a disadvantage for him. He placed fourth on his first speech and second on his second speech. Soto also competed in prose, advancing to finals and placing second. “It was a great experience, and I look forward to upcoming meets,” Daniel said.

Junior Clayton Jaskinia, who competed in persuasive speaking, received great compliments on both of his speeches. He placed sixth, came back, and got first on his second performance. “We always have an awesome time at meets. Our team is really close, and we’re always motivating each other to perform our best,” Clayton said.

Senior Rosa Rosales competed in informative speaking and placed fourth on her first speech and sixth on her second speech. She has participated in informative speaking for four years and absolutely loves it, especially how competitive the competition gets. “I have participated in a lot of meets since freshman year; however, I do once in a while get nervous before I speak in front of the judges,” Rosa said. “I’m lucky I have such an awesome team to keep me calm.”

Saturday was a really big meet, for the most part, with some tough competitors, but it was definitely worth the experience. Poth has a strong speech team, and it will only get better from here. This year is “our year.”

Poth High School sophomore Rosa Rosales is the daughter of Jose and Vicortia Rosales. She is a member of the FCCLA and participates in UIL informative speaking and current events. A senior, she works at Taqueria Jalisco and plans to major in mass communications in college.
