2nd Place Group Pic 002

Fresh off their 10th straight Region Championship, the Vidalia High School Literary Team traveled to Milledgeville Saturday for the GHSA AA State Literary Meet, finishing second by just 7 points behind ACE Charter. The second-place finish was the highest in the school's history since the 1973 team placed 2nd.

Along with the 2nd place finish, Alan Johnson took first place in the "Oral Interpretation, Humorous" category, and Johnson and Dottie McDaniel teamed up to take the "Oral Interpretation Duo" championship category. The three state championships were the first since 2019, when Jariyah Williams took first in the "Oral Interpretation, Humorous" category.

Also medaling were Sage Powell, who was the runner-up in "Oral Interpretation, Dramatic," and Shannon Collins, who was 3rd in "Girl's Solo. The Girl's Trio and Boy's Quartet also had good performances, with both teams finishing 3rd.

Margaret Pournelle, the VHS Literary Coach, said she was proud of the results and hard work of the students, "The victories at the state literary meet represent months of hard work, and the work ethic of these students is unmatched! We are thrilled at this accomplishment and are still soaring!"
