Evans, and Ezekiel Heaton.

Ezekiel Heaton barely missed qualifying for

state. He was 4th overall in both of his events:

Extemporaneous Speaking and Poetry.

The team then traveled for the State Contest

in Kearney on March 18th. Eric and Emily Gentry

represented Hyannis well, bringing home 7th place

with their Duet. We are proud of the speech team

and all of their accomplishments!
