On Saturday, April 21, Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School Seniors, Aaron Alford and Emily Dodd, competed at the 4A Region III Academic Meet at Sam Houston State University.

Alford and Dodd reached this level of competition by placing First in Poetry and Second in Prose, respectively, at the District 20-4A Meet last month.

At Regionals, Dodd placed third in Preliminary competition and missed Regional Finals by one cumulative point. Alford was ranked 1-1-1 from all three judges in Preliminaries and moved on to Poetry Finals.

He then placed fourth, and was named the Regional Alternate to the 20-4A State Contest. The students are coached by LCM Theater Director, Cory Broom.
