Sweeping Victory for Ashland at Regional Acting Competition


The bus left Ashland High School on Friday, January 1st with 33 drama students and came back on Saturday with a bus load of winners and ribbons! 29 students won in nine different categories; some even won in multiple categories. Many Ashland High School students are qualified to compete at State Acting Competition in April, which will be held in Salem. These talented students together earned Ashland High School its highest number of victories, ever. 27 other high schools from the region went to Regionals in South Eugene, including the neighboring towns of Phoenix High School and North Medford High School.

Congrats to all the winners, and break a leg at State in April!
