The Mason County Central Forensics Team, under the direction of Tom Richert, and Sean Carr brought 28 students to state finals at Oakland University last weekend.  The team experienced a two day elimination round process in B, C/D competition.

MCC qualified 10 of 19 events in semi-finals and seven events in finals, which are the top six in the state. The team scored 285 points and was state runner-up to Ann Arbor Greenhills with a score of 408. Last year MCC forensics placed second in state in class B.

Richert has coached the team for 25 years and the last five has been his most successful at the state level.  “We have very talented students, and each year the forensics team works from January to May for competition,” Richert said. “It’s a very long season, but, very worth while. I am so proud of this team, we go against the best teams in the state and hold our own each year. We compete against private schools and over the last few years we have been one of the top performing public schools in the state.”
