DDF team continues strong performances


The Haines Drama, Debate and Forensics team returned home this week after a strong showing at a meet in Ketchikan last weekend.

Both Tiaya Ruggirello and Dylan Chapell earned individual accolades for their performances.

In only his second DDF meet of the season and the first time working with the piece, Chapell took home first place honors for his Humorous Interpretation of Brian Eden’s “Fear the Laundry.” For her part, Ruggirello placed third in the Humorous Interpretation category with a performance of Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant Massacre.”

Additional members of the team were Rachel Haas, Xi Xao “Max” White and Brandt Alten-Huber.

The DDF team will be at Thunder Mountain High School in Juneau on Jan. 13-14 for their last regional meet. It will also travel to Anchorage Feb. 23-25 for the DDF state meet.

Coach Amanda Randles said the team will likely host fundraising events in the new year.
