The Perham Yellowjacket Speech Team, undefeated in team play this season, sent what was probably a record-tying number of individuals to the state tournament last weekend.


Speech Coach Sandra Wieser-Matthews, who has lead the team for a quarter of a century, said the 13 students who went to state in St. Peter, at Gustavus College, probably tied the number competing last year.

Assistant coaches this year were Tricia Irvine, Kasey Karsnia, and volunteer coach Tom Tomporowski.
