Warrior forensics advances to state, hosts open house

The Lakeside Lutheran High School forensics team earned top scores in district competition March 16 at Belleville High School as each of the 25 entries from Lakeside earned advancement to the Wisconsin High School Forensics Association (WHSFA) State Speech Festival at UW–Madison April 21. There the Lakeside team will look to capture its 8th consecutive Excellence in Speech Award, given when a team places in the top five percent of more than 350 high school forensics teams that compete in Wisconsin. In preparation, the team is hosting a “Family & Friends” performance night at the school on Wednesday, April 19, from 6-8 PM.

Within 14 districts across the state, WHSFA District competition scoring involves forensic entries being evaluated by three different judges. To qualify for the state festival, two of the three scores for an entry must be a minimum 20 points; the 25 entries of the Warrior forensics team were all awarded at least 20 points on each of their 75 scores. Lakeside Lutheran students are among over 7,000 Wisconsin high school students that compete in individual and group categories that include Demonstration, Informative or Extemporaneous Speech, Public Address, Moments in History, Special Occasion Speaking, Radio Announcing, Poetry, Prose or Literature Interpretation, Farrago, Play Acting and Story Telling.

In preparation for competition and to provide a night of entertainment for its supporters, the team is hosting a free night of oratory performance. All fans and families are invited to the school on Wednesday, April 19 from 6-8 PM to choose 12 performances from among 24 offerings, presented in two rounds of 50 minutes each in various rooms on campus. The presentations will include most of the categories heard at WHSFA.

Lakeside Lutheran has chosen its representatives for the 2017 Badger Boys and Girls State Conferences in June. The reps for the class of 2018, pictured L-R, are Emily Raymond, Matthias Winters, James Neuberger and Emma Guld.

Ranked first academically in his class of 2018, James Neuberger has been part of the math team for three years, the Academic Bowl for two, and sings with the school’s traveling A Cappella Choir. He has participated in cross country, basketball, track and soccer. A member at St. Paul, Lake Mills, he is part of Teens for Christ, participating in school and community service projects throughout the school year. With perfect attendance and no tardies for all three years, he is planning to study for a degree in Pharmacy. “It’s an honor to be selected for Badger Boys State,” says Neuberger. “I appreciate that my efforts in the classroom have been recognized by teachers and administrators. Badger Boys State will give me the opportunity to find out more about myself and what I’m capable of accomplishing in the near future. Outside of school activities, he also works for the City of Lake Mills Parks Department. When asked what he was most looking forward to learning or experiencing at BBS, Neuberger replied, “I’m looking forward to further development of my leadership skills and a better understanding of the government process.”

Matthias Winters, ranked 6th in his class, has served as the class vice president for three years. He participates in concert band, jazz band, marching band, and A Cappella Choir. He has received two state first place medals at WSMA for piano and two outstanding musician awards for trombone. In addition, he participates on the math team and in the Academic Bowl, is the charter president of the Lakeside Lutheran STEM Club and writes for the student newspaper. For sports, he has participated in three years of football, two years of basketball, and one of baseball and two in track. A member at St. Luke, Watertown, Winters is part of the youth group, church band, and co-ed softball at church, and serves as an usher. He will also participate in OperationGo, the school summer mission trip program. He works as a cart-pusher at Walmart in Watertown. Winters plans to major in Industrial Engineering and minor in business at Milwaukee School of Engineering, while also doing the Reserve Officers Training Corps. He sees the opportunity to attend Badger State, “as an honor and a great opportunity to meet lots of kids who all have a bright future. This selection shows me that my teachers think highly of me and I can’t take that for granted,” he said. He is most looking forward to experiencing the elections. “I think it will be fun trying to run for the different offices.”

Emma Guld has participated in math meets, Academic Bowl, Forensics, Teens for Christ, and the school drama production each year. She participated in cross country, basketball, and band for two years. This year, she is part of FFA and STEM Club. Emma volunteers for the National Academy of Television and Sciences, and received two Emmy awards at Chicago Midwest Emmys for work on “Into The Outdoors.” Ranked 2nd in the class, she is considering becoming a dentist and eventually an orthodontist. Currently, she has a part-time job at the afterschool care program at St. Paul, Lake Mills, where she is a member. “I think that Badger Girls State will be a fantastic opportunity to learn from other people who have leadership roles in Wisconsin,” she says, and is “most looking forward to learning more about leadership with other girls that share a lot of the same interests that I do.”

Emily Raymond, a self-proclaimed “hard worker,” proves her claim. A member of the state championship forensics team, drama, and Teens for Christ for three years, she has also participated in track for two years and volleyball for one. She is making her second trip with OperationGo this summer. In service to the community, she has organized a book drive for a hospital clinic, volunteered at Second Harvest Food Bank, participated in Operation Christmas Child, been a “buddy” at the “Night to Shine” prom for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, organized a food drive for local food pantries, and caroled at Bethesda group and Willowbrook nursing homes. At her church, Peace in Sun Prairie, she teaches VBS, serves meals, helps with Advent by Candlelight, and is a member of the Youth Group. Working as a cashier in Sun Prairie, she plans to attend Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, to pursue a double major in elementary and special education. “It is a great honor to be chosen for BGS. I love to try new things, and this is not like anything I have ever tried before,” she says. “I am really looking forward to meeting other girls from all over Wisconsin! I am also excited to learn how to be a better leader. (I’ve heard that the food at BGS is pretty good too.)”

Badger State Government and Leadership Conferences are an opportunity for students entering their senior year of high school to put the principles of democratic government into action during a weeklong assembly. Sponsored by the Wisconsin American Legion and its Auxiliary, the goals of Badger State assemblies are to prepare young men and women of high school age for citizenship in a modern world, teach principles of democracy, instill a love of country and desire to preserve our government. Schools are encouraged to select representatives based on a combination of interest shown, leadership qualities, character, fitness, scholarship and extra-curricular activities.

At Lakeside, she has also played four years of basketball and also high jumped and run hurdles on the track and field team.
