The 2010-11 Gustavus forensics team at a tournament earlier in the season.

Gustavus Adolphus College’s nationally ranked forensics team will showcase some of its best performances of the year at 5 p.m. Monday, May 2 in the Courtyard Café, located on the lower level of the C. Charles Jackson Campus Center.

Team members will present six ten-minute performances. Students participating in this year’s Forensics Showcase include seniors Eric Cronin, Phil Helt and Claire Sagstuen; juniors Sam Hemmerich and Chloe Radcliffe; sophomores Kate Bissen and Kaitlin Burlingame; and first-year students Kelsey Abele, Justin Feit, and Shelby Wilds.

This year’s team finished the season ranked tenth in the nation after placing tenth at the American Forensic Association’s National Individual Events Tournament (AFA-NIET) on April 2-4. At the AFA-NIET, Radcliffe became Gustavus’s first ever competitor to win an individual national championship when she took home the first place trophy in Prose Interpretation. The team also won a national championship this year by placing first in the President’s II Division at the National Forensic Association’s National Championships on April 18.
