For the most part, NHS Forensics has had few disappointments and many pleasant surprises during competition in 2015. Today may have been the first exception, which I think is a really good thing.
One of the virtues of competition is that you can learn as much in defeat as you do in success. I suspect several members of our team feel defeated today, but the measure of their success on our team will be how they respond.
That’s not to say that we didn’t have any wins. Charlotte Andreasen took 1st place in Demonstration. Katie Folan took in 1st place Four-Minute. Skye Matula took 4th place in Special Occasion. The team took 5th place as a small team.
Certainly our judges were winners today, as the Kaukauna judges’ lounge is known for its excellent hospitality. We get to sleep in next week, as Sheboygan South is our destination!
