Slam Poetry Team Advances

Joey Recker, Kevin Arul, Tae Sung Kim, Thomas D'Aquila
On Tuesday, March 24th, Mount Michael Benedictine took part in a Poetry Slam competing against Marian, Omaha North and St. Luke's Lutheran.  A bout consists of 5 rounds.  In the first 4 rounds, each team sends an individual from their own team to recite a poem.  The fifth round consists of the entire group reading a piece.  In the fifth round the group presented the poem "The Flood"

The team has done remarkably well for having so many rookies.  Tae Sung was the only Mouont Michael competitor last year.  For the first time ever, the Knights have advanced to the semi finals and are ranked 10th out of 30 teams.

The semi final will take place at Witherspoon hall in the Joslyn Art Museum on Wednesday, April 8th at 5:30 pm.
