Princeton wins conference speech title


The Princeton High School speech team has been saving its best performances for its past couple competitions.  Fresh off a second place finish at Milaca last Saturday, the team followed up by winning the Granite Ridge Conference Tuesday by edging St. Cloud Cathedral by a point at Zimmerman. It was Princeton’s fifth straight conference championship.

Princeton led the conference with seven all-conference finishers (1st and 2nd), conference champions (4) and tied for the most honorable mention all-conference finishers (3rd Place) with three.  We had an additional 10 students earn team points by finishing in the top 8 in their category.
