Cole Evans, QueenTara Pimentel & Traelon Graham

UNO Forensics 8th in Nation

UNO senior QueenTara Pimentel won a national championship in Poetry Interpretation! Seniors Cole Evans and Traelon Graham tied for 1st place in duo (the tie was broken and they were awarded the second-place trophy). We are thrilled that the two events UNO advanced to finals took 1st and 2nd place.

MavForensics placed in the elite Top-10 programs for the fifth consecutive year, taking home the 8th place trophy. UNO had the smallest team in the Top-10 and their smallest team to date, making these awards particularly special.
