On December 1, the Middle School Competition Theatre class at Lakehill Preparatory School attended the Warriors Wild Thing Tournament at South Grand Prairie High School.
Two Lakehill students advanced to the Semi-finals round within their events: Ellis Langford with Prose and Poetry and Kole Cannon with his Humorous Interpretation. The Group Improv team of Cannon, Jeremiah Blanco, Isabel Ketterson, and Willow Turkyilmaz also advanced to Semi-finals.
Anna Knickel advanced to Finals in two events, earning seventh place overall in Poetry and first place in Storytelling. The Lakehill team was awarded second place as Most Efficient Team which was based on the percentage of the team advancing in the tournament.
"I am thrilled with the results of Lakehill's first foray into the Middle School Theatre Competition world," said sponsor Mark Guerra. "I am excited to see what we can accomplish next semester."
About Lakehill Preparatory School
At Lakehill Preparatory School, we know that bigger is not always better. Lakehill is -- and always has been -- small by design.
Our school combines a strong, engaging academic program with a kind and inclusive community. A small student body offers a greater opportunity for each student to experience academic and leadership growth. Students develop a strong sense of belonging, and pride in their community, their school, and themselves.
Community spirit is encouraged in our small school environment. Strong relationships develop between home and school, and school leaders are far more involved with individual students than in a larger school setting. Lakehill staff pride themselves on knowing every child by name.
Lakehill builds an atmosphere of respect, accountability, collaboration, and mentoring between students and teachers, and provides the resources and learning opportunities that empower students to be architects of their own education.
