The Yellowjacket Speech team took second out of 11 teams at a tournament in Staples on Saturday.

The Yellowjackets competed with just half their team members due to illness and other school trips. Even with only half the team, however, they only missed first place by 18 points.


The team travels to Apple Valley this weekend to compete at the Star Tribune Eastview Lightning Classic. It is one of the largest tournaments in the state.
