Additionally, a number of our writers placed individually. They included:

"Our writers worked so diligently and creatively and represented Wyoming City Schools well. Mrs. White and I couldn't be more proud of them," said Coach Griggs.

The following writers qualified in the state writing competition in May: Elana Berman, Teigan Ellis, Ella Fernandez, Maggie Galvin, Rosie Galvin, Vris Hossein, and Lorelei Wise.

A special thank you to the Wyoming School Foundation for their generous funding! Their contributions made the team's success at the regional tournament possible.
