The Midlothian High School Varsity Forensics Speech team, in a well-fought linguistic battle, placed third at the VHSL Region 4A East Forensics Tournament, held on Saturday 25, 2017. Midlothian High School hosted the regional tournament and drew competition from high schools all over the state of Virginia. According to Forensics coach David Wilson, over the past couple years, “The competition in the 4A East Region has been increasing,” making the Midlothian Forensics Team rise to the occasion and, in turn, become better. The following warriors of wit placed and qualified for the VHSL State Forensics Tournament on March 25th at Clover Hill High School.
