The Wauneta Breeze


With a win at districts last week, the cast and crew of the Wauneta-Palisade High School One-Act play, “How to Kiss a Girl,” travelled to Norfolk Tuesday for the State Championship held Wednesday for Class D2.

It is the school’s fourth trip to the State Championships. WP has brought home a trophy from each previous trip, as the Class D1 runner up in 1997 and 1999 and winning Class C2 in 2001.

Following basketball practices Tuesday morning, the cast and crew joined with their fans for a send-off in the high school gym. The Bronco Boosters presented them with shirts and Women of Today provided the students with refreshments for the five-hour drive.

The team stopped and practiced at Gothenburg, then spent the night in Norfolk.

Also from the RPAC competing at State is Paxton, which beat WP by four points at the conference competition.

WP also faced and beat qualifiers Ravenna in Class C1 and York in Class B at Gothenburg in November.

Chase County qualified for State in Class C1.

Liz Noler said the students were extremely excited to win Districts and have worked very hard to make it back to state.

At Districts, WP beat runner-up Wallace by 15 points, 174 to 159.

There was a tight competition between fourth through seventh places.

Thedford was third (156) followed by Sandhills in fourth (153); Hayes Center fifth (152); McPherson County, last season’s district champion, in sixth (152) and Arnold seventh (153). Maywood was eighth with 137 points.

Results from the State Championships will be included in next week’s issue.
