With the first tournament of the season now squarely in the rearview mirror, the Spuds will split squads this weekend as they travel to both Marshall and Fergus Falls. Fifty speakers will compete at the two day "spectacular" in Marshall, a contest Moorhead won last season. The first round begins Friday afternoon with a fourth preliminary round, quarterfinals, semifinals and finals all scheduled for Saturday.

Meanwhile, the remainder of the team will take part in the "Otter Orations" tournament in Fergus Falls on Saturday. The section host offers three rounds beginning at 9:45 a.m.

Follow results all weekend on our Twitter page, and be sure to tune in Saturday afternoon for a live stream of the awards ceremony, broadcast on Twitter @SpudSpeech.
